Overall migration testing – simulant A, B, D2 (all foodstuff)

Overall migration (OML) testing with simulant A, B, and D2 is used to ensure compliance of food packaging, cling film, freezer bags, nitrile gloves, takeaway boxes, and all other single-use materials or articles that are intended for contact with all types of foods.

Overall migration (OM) is the sum of all the non-volatile compounds that migrate from the food contact material into the food. According to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011, materials and articles intended for contact with all types of food shall be tested with food simulants A (10% ethanol), B (3% acetic acid), and D2 (olive oil).

To comply with Regulation (EU) No 10/2011, the overall migration must not exceed 10 mg/dm2 (or 60 mg/kg).
