Project Consortium Partners


Partner Code: 4
Short Name: CEPE
Full Name: FACET Packaging Industry Group
Address: Avenue Edmond Van Nieuwenhuyse, Brussels, 1160 Belgium
Web address: http://www.cepe.org

Organisation:

Industry formed a Vision Exposure Group some years ago to address consumer exposure to migrants from food contact materials. This group has been pro-active in initiating exposure modelling work and the collection of food packaging usage data for some European countries. The Vision exposure group has decided to fully support FACET by the provision of funding and expertise. To do this it has formed the FACET Industry Group (FIG) with offices located at CEPE in Brussels.  FIG consists of industry sectors covering plastics, metal and paper/board packaging with other packaging materials expressing an interest to participate. Thus the actual list is most likely larger than that given here. Being represented at the trade association level allows the interests of SMEs to be fully protected. For example, one of the partner trade associations (EUPC) represents the interests of 37,000 packaging SMEs. FIG has been structured to utilise the expertise of its various members.  There is an overall chair (Peter Oldring) and three sectors, namely plastics, metal and paper/board, are each represented by a deputy chair.  The three sectors are further subdivided into flexible and rigid plastics, coated and uncoated metal, paper/board and laminated paper/board. These technical experts form part of an industry steering group.

Role in Facet:

WP4. Expertise on packaging materials and their use and composition rests largely with industry. The industry participants will guide the project at all stages, they will provide information on packaging composition and usage gathered from their own members, and they will advise on how best to obtain and interpret data for 27 member states including extrapolation to fill data gaps.
