Global Protocol on Packaging Sustainability and Mineral Oil Migration

The frequency of requests on these two subjects are increasing, but are currently not numerous. If you are not a follower of the ASKRalph! blog, now may be the time to register your email. If you are involved in food grade packaging in a primary, secondary, or tertiary system, you may want to begin to follow the developments more closely.

Here is a link to a webinar on the GPPS initiative hosted by Consumer Goods Forum, Kraft Foods, Unilever, Nestlé, European, and GreenBlue. This one hour presentation will bring you into the current thinking of this universal project. Global Packaging Forum

The issue of Mineral Oil Migration is still a developing issue. Our associates at Sun Chemical provided the link to the National Association of Printing Ink Manufactures. While there is a $25 charge for this OSHA compliance webinar with highlights in dust control and the Globally Harmonized System. Only Germany has implemented the program. OSHA Webinar

As always please contact me if you need further details. Our friend Maryanne Jashinske, who has done two UN HazMat webinars for us, is becoming Food Safety certified and is another excellent resource that you can reach through this association.
