This part of this European Prestandard describes a method of test for the determination of the overall migration from one surface only of plastics in the form of finished articles, which are intended to come into contact with a fatty foodstuff, by filling the finished article with olive oil and leaving for 10 days, 24 h or 2 h at 40 °C or for 2 h at 70 °C. Testing samples by this method enables testing of non-homogeneous articles providing that they are not too large. This method is most suitable for plastics in the form of containers and articles that can be filled.
When the standard is harmonized under a directive or regulation, the word Harmonized appear. When such an inscription does not appear, it means that the standard is related to / supporting the relevant directive or regulation.
