The draft Commission Directive amends Directive 90/128/EEC on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs, to include into the Community positive list new substances, which have been evaluated by the Scientific Committee on Food. The Directive also modifies some restrictions or specifications for certain substances already listed, based on a new opinion of the SCF.

No comments were received following notification of the draft measures to the WTO (G/SPS/N/EEC/138).

The Committee expressed a favourable opinion on the draft by qualified majority.
