This standard defines terms, areas of application and test methods for materials and objects that are intended to come into contact with food.
This is a central test for the suitability for contact with food in order to ensure conformity according to (EU) 1935/2004 and 10/2011
Both the standard migration test procedures, substitute test procedures and alternative test procedures are described and defined here.

Furthermore, the respective test media for the tests are specified. A rough distinction is made here between the aqueous and greasy test foods.
The test conditions differ in various categories:
An important point is the definition of the samples and their geometries.
Here are important criteria such as: surface / volume ratio, testing of a surface by filling, objects for multiple use, etc.
