This part of this European Standard provides a guide to the selection of the appropriate conditions of contact of food simulants with the test article before the determination of specific migration of those substances subject to a migration limit.
NOTE According to Directive 90/128/EEC[2] the determination of the migration of specified components in foodstuffs instead of the use of simulants is permitted. However, in that situation there is no need to give guidance on the test conditions of time and temperature as contact conditions shall be equal to conditions applied in real.
Also general guidance is given for the determination of the amount of the substance in the final plastics material or article.
