Abstract

In Denmark a national restriction was implemented in 2010 banning the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in any Food Contact Materials intended for children in the age 0-3 years. The ban includes BPA in baby bottles, baby cups, food cans for infant formulas and lids for glass containers with baby food. To enforce this regulation samples needed to be analysed using a stepwise test procedure to ensure that BPA was neither used as a starting substance in a polymer nor as an additive.
