More stringent European directives on the circular economy of reusable products prompted the creation of the DESIGNED TO BE REUSABLE – AIMPLAS certificate, which provides greater transparency and information while guaranteeing the rigorous application of a set of standardized measures agreed at European level to safeguard consumer safety when using reusable plastic materials for food contact.
The certificate is the result of 30 years’ experience in the sector of food contact plastic materials and the pioneering work of our expert team. It is based on Regulation (EC) 1935/2004, Commission Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011, Regulation (EC) No. 282/2008, as well as recently issued standard UNE 53928:2020 on reusable plastic tableware for food use. All this involves a detailed study of the inertness and chemical toxicity of plastic materials during reuse, as well as their functionality after repeated dishwasher washing under standardized conditions.
