However, new EU legislation coming into force requires all thermal paper sold in Europe to be free of BPA after 2 January 2020. </p><p>UPM Raflatac has anticipated this change with a full range of uncoated and top-coated BPA-free thermal label materials for most typical end-use requirements. We also offer bisphenol-free and total phenol-free label products for more specific end-user demands.</p><p>“It is important to stay a step ahead of legislation, which is why we are ready to offer a full range of BPA-free thermal label papers well in advance of the deadline,” says <strong>Jon Lenck</strong>, Director, Business Segment VIP & Prime, EMEIA. “If you have any concerns about which product is right for you, get in touch and we’ll be happy to provide guidance.”</p><p><a href="http://www.upmraflatac.com/emea/en/solutions-and-services/labeling-solutions/retail/bpa-free-products">Find out more about EU regulation 2016/2235 and discover our full range of BPA-free thermal label materials »</a></p><p><strong>For further information, please contact:</strong><br>Mr Jon Lenck, Director, VIP & Prime, UPM Raflatac EMEIA, tel. +48 71 776 5000</p>
