FCCdb: Food Contact Chemicals database. Version 5.0

Ksenia Groh; Birgit Geueke; Jane Muncke

The Food Contact Chemicals database (FCCdb) is a compilation of information on intentionally added food contact chemicals, extracted from publicly available sources such as legislation on food contact materials and industry inventories for different types of food contact materials. Where available, information from a few selected sources on hazardous properties and commercial use has been included as well. Further details on the information sources used are given in the READ ME worksheet of the excel file. The FCCdb intends to provide an overview of the diversity of food contact chemicals and their hazardous properties. Further details on the compilation and analysis of this dataseta can be found in the manuscript "Overview of intentionally used food contact chemicals and their hazards," by Ksenia J. Groh, Birgit Geueke, Olwenn Martin, Maricel Maffini, and Jane Muncke, published in Environmental International on November 30, 2020 (DOI 10.1016/j.envint.2020.106225).

While all efforts were made to ensure completeness and correctness, all information provided in the FCCdb is without liability, and the original data sources should be consulted for complete information.
