The United Arab Emirates (UAE) UAE Scheme for Control on Food Contact Materials (FCM) came into force under UAE cabinet resolution No. 21 for the year 2015[1]. Per the Scheme, all FCM must comply with UAE.S GSO 2231 which states the general requirements and other relevant technical/safety standards for the materials or articles intended to come into contact with food. THE GSO standards are adopted by most of the Gulf nations.


The Scheme also introduced labelling requirements for materials in contact with food.
