Do I need an FDA statement or a Declaration of Compliance?
Even before the European rules such as regulation EC 1935/2004 and regulation EU 10/2011 came into force, the FDA regulation already existed in the United States of America. When at that time a conveyor belt complied with FDA rules, people knew it was suitable for the food industry. Thus FDA became a very well-known term in belting and food processing. An FDA-approved conveyor belt was in compliance with all food regulations. Nowadays this is no longer the case.
