Thailand's Ministry of Industry (MOI) has commissioned the Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) to publish a draft ministerial regulation on food contact materials.



The draft requires food contact paper to comply with TIS Standard 2948-2562(2019). This standard specifies the safety requirements for paper, cardboard and paper containers without colour intended for general food contact use and hot fill. The requirements apply to both direct and indirect contact with food, where potential migration of substances in the food may occur.

Comments can be submitted by email to the Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) at thaitbt@tisi.mail.go.th by 11 May 2021.
