Overall migration testing – simulant C (20% ethanol), repeated use

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, food simulant C shall be used to assess overall migration into alcoholic foods with an alcohol content of up to 20 % and those foods which contain a relevant amount of organic ingredients that render the food lipophilic.

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

The test is intended for repeat-use articles and materials, and thus is repeated three times for the same article/sample. The compliance is evaluated from the 3rd migration.
