The FDA standard
The FDA standard means that the Federal Government of the United States supervises medicines, food, biological products and medical equipment. The FDA standards apply as international control standards. The FDA's Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) includes a list of chemical materials and products approved for contact with food. The rules that apply to "rubber articles intended for repeated use" are specified in CFR 21.177.2600.
The European standard EC 1935/2004
Materials and articles intended to come into contact with food must adhere to the EC1935 / 2004 standard. It is a repeal of Directives 80/590 / EEC and 89/109 / EEC.
Because there is no harmonization or approved list of ingredients in Europe, MCD has chosen, like all manufacturers of gaskets for plate heat exchangers, to adhere to the FDA standard as a reference for the EC1935 / 2004 standard.
