Abstract: The following report is a technical report mostly destined to Commission services, National Reference Laboratories and Member State Competent Authorities. It reports the 2009 update of the deliverables from the work programme 2009 of the European Union Reference Laboratory for Food Contact Materials established under Regulation EC No 882/2004. The 2009 annual work programme of the EURL included methods of analysis protocols (Art 32 1(a)), reliability of results & comparative testing (Art 32 1(b)), with several guidance documents produced on method performance and validation, on sampling and testing conditions, on the 4th amendment of Directive 2002/72/EC. Two validation studies for a) Di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP) in oil and b) Bisphenol A (BPA) in the new milk simulant 50% Ethanol were organised and completed successfully. Other items completed included the collection of reference monomers and additives, emerging issues such as the Plastic Implementing Measures and in particular on the revision of Community Guidelines for Migration Testing, as well as on active and intelligent packaging (AIM). Several trainings were organised by the EURL upon request, including delegates from the FVO as well a for a delegate from Vietnam.
