Declaration of Compliance – what information is obligatory?

Declaration of Compliance – what information is obligatory?

根据欧洲框架条例EC 1935/2004上的所有食品接触材料,用于食品工业输送带的供应商应以确认他们的产品符合适用的欧洲客户提供合规(DOC)的宣言。

Since a DoC contains an extensive amount of data, it can be complicated to确定哪些信息是没有必要的。在这篇文章中,我将说明哪些细节必须包括在的DoC.


  • Address and identity of the manufacturer
  • Identification of the materials and/or items
  • Date of the declaration
  • Confirmation of compliance with (EC) No. 1935/2004
  • Adequate information about migration restrictions / specifications of substances
  • Adequate information about substances with food additive restrictions
    Specifications concerning the use of material (food types, temperature, time, min. food/space ratio)
  • 回收塑料的存在(登记号码)

The information given below is not included in a DoC:

  • Migration values
  • Ending date of the declaration (not obligatory)

Migration values

经常有人问我关于提供我们的传送带的迁移值。它有时被认为是食品加工企业必须以符合食品安全标准(BRC,IFS,ISO 22000 EN FSSC 22000)提供的迁移值,但根据欧洲规则,没有食品安全标准要求提供传送带的迁移值。

Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011, a specific plastics directive within Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004, states that “documents” (migration values, etc.) are explicitly intended for the regulatory authorities. A conveyor belt shall comply with the European rules and a Declaration of Compliance must be drawn up for this.

Lately, we have received a number of inquiries about how Habasit deals with the new COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2016/1416 of 24 August 2016 amending and correcting Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. Regulation (EU) No 2016/1416 is not a new regulation but one of eight amendments to regulation 10/2011. Habasit’s Declaration of Compliance for food contact materials always refers to the latest update of this regulation.

Within the recent updates, manufacturers are also given the necessary time to adapt their products to the new requirements. Without this transition, products would become illegal within 20 days after the publication of the amendment.

Status at Habasit

As one regulation is often referring to another inthese documents, this can lead to some uncertainty, but rest assured that all Habasit food belts comply with the currently applicable rules. I keep a close track of any changes and will be quick to inform Habasit employees of any relevant information.
