On 24 December, France approved a law banning bisphenol A (“BPA”) in all food packaging, containers and utensils, with effect from 1 January 2015. BPA will also be banned from food containers aimed at children under the age of three from 2013. This goes further than the current EU regulation, which only bans BPA in infant feeding bottles.
