KRAIBURG TPE adheres to China’s GB standards requirements
KRAIBURG TPE is proud to announce that its specific TPE compounds have received the Declaration of Compliance (DoC), according to the GuoBiao (GB) standards in the People’s Republic of China.
Beyond the aesthetics, product quality encompasses safety to ensure the health of end users. In the crosshairs of safety regulations are food contact materials, which are found in common items that we use on a daily basis. These materials ensure the requirements of safety when used in products that come into contact with food, like packaging materials and containers; or if put into the mouth, like toys and cutlery.
KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a wide range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom solutions that cater to multiple industries, is committed to meeting global safety standards for food contact materials.
The company is proud to announce that its specific TPE compounds have received the Declaration of Compliance (DoC), according to the GuoBiao (GB) standards in the People’s Republic of China.
To establish the protection of human health, personal property and safety, products entering China, including chemical substances, intermediate materials and finished products, are required to comply with the GB standards.
China, the world’s fastest growing economy, has enforced product safety laws and policies that are continually updated, to heed the public’s rising concerns on product safety. The food safety GB standards, particularly GB4806:2016, ensure sufficient regulatory compliance for food contact materials and articles in China.
