TITLE 21--FOOD AND DRUGS
CHAPTER I--FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
SUBCHAPTER B--FOOD FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION (CONTINUED)

PART 171 -- FOOD ADDITIVE PETITIONS

Subpart A--General Provisions

Sec. 171.8 Threshold of regulation for substances used in food-contact articles.

Substances used in food-contact articles (e.g., food-packaging or food-processing equipment) that migrate or that may be expected to migrate into food at negligible levels may be reviewed under 170.39 of this chapter. The Food and Drug Administration will exempt substances whose uses it determines meet the criteria in 170.39 of this chapter from regulation as food additives and, therefore, a food additive petition will not be required for the exempted use.
