EU Authorities are concerned about the safety of using peanut butter

At the moment EU Authorities are concerned about the safety of using peanut butter, its extracts and derivatives in cosmetic products. It is feared that exposure to the skin of peanut butter by using cosmetic products can cause sensitization of the human body to peanuts and a possible allergic reaction. Concern is also expressed about the safety of cosmetic products containing hydrolyzed wheat proteins.

In the context of the views of SCCF, the use of cosmetic products containing peanut oil, extracts and derivatives, and also containing hydrolyzed wheat proteins, poses a potential risk to human health. To ensure the safety of cosmetic products for human health, it is advisable to establish the maximum concentration of peanut protein in peanut butter, its extracts and their derivatives in cosmetic products at 0.5 ppm. and the average molecular weight of the peptides in hydrolyzed wheat proteins used in cosmetic products is limited to a maximum of 3.5 kDa.

Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 is amended in accordance with the adoption of relevant decisions in the EU.

Since September 25, 2018, cosmetic products containing one or more substances limited by this Regulation should not be placed on the market of the Union.

A new harmonized standard EN 13001-3-5: 2016 Cranes

A new harmonized standard EN 13001-3-5: 2016 Cranes – General design – Part 3-5: Limit states and proof of competence of forged hooks.

The European standard EN 13001-3-5: 2016 should be used in conjunction with EN 13001-1 and EN 13001-2, as it sets out the general conditions, requirements and design and theoretical verification methods that impede the mechanical types of lifting hooks.

The harmonized European standard EN 13001-3-5: 2016 covers the following parts of hooks and hook types:

- the main part of each type of steel hook, forged;

- mechanical threaded rod / nut for hanging.

The rules of this European Standard can be applied to machined shanks in general. However, you need to specify and use a stress ratio suitable for projects not included in this standard.

Do not consider cast hooks and hooks with plates that are assembled from one or more parallel parts of steel sheets.

Grasping hooks and hooks for plates in which a combination of one or more interacting parts of steel rolling plates are combined are not covered by this European Standard.

A list of dangerous situations and events that may pose a danger to people under normal and foreseeable abuse is provided.

Packaging

Packaging is one of the important elements of the process of production and sale of food products. This helps protect them from physical damage, dust and other factors, which adds additional value to consumers. Achieving maximum profit and reducing costs becomes important in the light of intense competition and the growing globalization of production.

Safety rules are the main problems among producers, especially in the health and food industries, especially in emerging economies such as India, China and Latin America.

Plastic has become the main choice of materials in numerous types of packaging in a wide range of industries, including food and beverages, health care, cosmetics, personal hygiene, and consumer goods. Plastic offers a cleaner, more flexible and more attractive form of packaging, especially for various products and beverages, and manufacturers offer plastic packaging products with remarkable aesthetic and barrier properties, which has led to a steady evolution of the market.

The global market for plastic packaging is primarily driven by increased demand from the expanding food industry. In addition, changes in lifestyles in emerging markets have stimulated demand for plastic packaging, such as bags, bags and containers.

Recent advances in materials science and manufacturing technology have led to the development of advanced plastic packaging with high strength and in accordance with the requirements of EU Regulation 10/2011 and EU Regulation 1935/2004. The constant efforts of developers to expand application possibilities for plastic packaging, especially in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, have led to the development of technologies in the production of increasingly safe plastic food packaging.

The Asia-Pacific market offers ample opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers of plastic packaging. Huge growth in the regional market is due to the extensive demand for packaging materials from plastics for the food industry.
