The database lists effective premarket notifications for food contact substances that have been demonstrated to be safe for their intended use.
The list includes the food contact substance (FCS), the notifier, the manufacturer of the FCS, the intended use, the limitations on the conditions of use
for the FCS and its specifications, the effective date, and its environmental decision. Under section 409(h)(2)(C) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic
Act (21 U.S.C. 348 (h)(2)(C)) a food contact notification (FCN) is only effective for the manufacturer or supplier identified in the notification. Persons
who market a FCS based on an effective notification must be able to demonstrate that the notification is effective for their food contact substance.
All persons who purchase a food contact substance manufactured or supplied by a manufacturer or supplier identified in an effective notification may
rely on that notification to legally market or use the food contact substance for the use that is the subject of the notification, consistent with any limitations in that notification.
Additional information about Food Contact Substances and the Definitions of Food Types and Conditions of Use
are available on the FCS Program page.
