Paperboard Companies

The Recycled Paperboard Technical Association (RPTA) sponsored the preparation of a sampling and analysis protocol that RPTA member mills can use to determine that paperboard produced from recycled fiber may safely be used in food contact applications and help ensure compliance with the FDA regulations outlined in 21 CFR 176.260.  Allowable concentration values for the potential unintentional chemical constituents in the paperboard have been calculated based on migration adjustments.
