Detection of toxic substances in packaging

normal> last September, the US packaging materials toxic substances cleaning agency will launch a pilot test project funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency to conduct spot checks on packaging products containing toxic substances that violate state laws. This project will directly affect the interests of all members of the soft packaging industry, including suppliers and users

At present, ten states have announced their participation in this project, and they are all members of the United States packaging materials toxic substances cleaning agency. The packaging products tested were provided by these 10 states, and they were all suspected substandard products randomly collected from grocery stores, hardware stores or other stores

normal> nowadays, it is a very simple process to detect the prohibited toxins in packaged products. The new technology used today, a portable X-ray gun, can get the test results in just a few minutes, replacing the time-consuming and expensive laboratory testing in the past

normal> this test project aims to improve people's understanding of the regulations on packaging toxic substances. These regulations restricting the sale of products containing toxic substances such as lead, magnesium, cadmium and hexavalent chromium in packaging or packaging components (including printing inks) can effectively reduce the content of toxic substances in local solid waste landfills. These laws are based on the model regulations formulated by the northeast United Resource Management Association. At present, a total of 19 states have passed some of the provisions of the regulation, which was born in 1989, including California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Maine. The fees include meals, venue fees, expert fees, information fees and other states, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin

normal> the model regulations formulated by the northeast United Resource Management Association of the United States stipulate the concentration of various toxic substances mentioned above. At present, the content of these ingredients in the package cannot exceed 100ppm. Although only 19 states have passed this regulation at present, when you consider the proportion of the total population and packaging market of these 19 states in the United States, it is not difficult to find that this is enough to have an important impact on packaging sales nationwide

A major feature of this regulation is that it is not only binding on the manufacturers of packaging materials and packaging ingredients, but also requires raw material suppliers and packaging end users to comply with it. In addition, it also promotes the European Union to establish its own devices for packaging. Whether the devices are good or not has a great impact on the experimental operation

normal> once the packaging is found not to meet the standards of the regulations, the manufacturer must take remedial measures and adjust the products to meet the needs of the regulations. The manufacturer should also immediately stop the sales and distribution of this product, remove the products that have been put on the shelves, and issue an announcement on the station to warn consumers and tell them how to deal with these products correctly. Consumers can also send products back to the manufacturer for disposal

normal> although the model law stipulates that manufacturers of packaging or packaging components must produce a certificate of compliance with the law to amplify the effective pulse number by four times according to customer requirements, the U.S. packaging materials toxic substances cleaning agency is still worried that packaging products imported from abroad will violate the regulations of domestic states. The staff of the US packaging materials toxic substances cleaning agency said that international manufacturers did not seem to be aware of the requirements of these packaging. Officials of the agency said they hoped to understand the seriousness of the current problem through the inspection of the tensile testing machine

This test procedure will undoubtedly enhance people's review of the content of heavy metals in packaging. All members of the packaging industry will be aware of the requirements of the northeast United Resource Management Association and this testing procedure
