One of the matters of concern regarding nanoparticles is whether they can migrate into food from packaging materials. In an attempt to answer this question, EFSA has established a working group and is currently preparing new rules for risk assessment. These will provide practical recommendations on how to assess applications for industry on the use of ENM (Engeneered Nanomaterials) and especially in the case of food contact materials. A first draft is expected in July 2010.
