The EU Regulation 1935/2004 on food contact materials and articles and the Regulation 2023/2006 on good manufacturing practice (GMP) are the major European laws applicable to corrugated packaging used in food applications. There is no harmonised legislation on paper in board at EU level. However, many countries have their own national legislation, which often differs. This makes it very difficult for companies producing and selling corrugated paper packaging across Europe.
