This report gives a toxicological assessment of certain monomers and other starting substances which could migrate into food from plastic materials and other food packaging. The Committee has endorsed the ADIs (Acceptable Daily Intake) for food additives established by the JECFA and has established TDIs (Tolerable Daily Intake) for monomers where the data sufficed. Where the data is insufficient for this purpose, substances are listed according to their acceptability for use or otherwise. Recommendations are given for further investigations and toxicological tests required for these substances.
