EU approval for food contact
Jensen Metal has the statutory registration for food contact.
According to section 26 of the Danish Food Act no. 526 and licensing order no. 149, companies which import or manufacture materials and articles intended to come into contact with food must be registered with the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (DVFA).
Therefore, you can safely use us to manufacture your components intended for contact with food.
If, prior to submission of an order, a buyer specifies that there are special requirements for traceability, either traceability of a raw material or traceability in accordance with EU Regulation 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, Jensen Metal can provide the required documentation.
See our declaration of conformity.

None of the products we sell or manufacture for our customers are affected by the European Parliament and the Council Regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
One of the regulation's requirements is that manufacturers and importers must register any chemicals/substances of which they import over 1 tonne a year. Another requirement is that they must inform customers if the customer's product contains a concentration of over 0.1% of any substances on the candidate list. A third requirement is that they must not use any substances on the list in annex XVII.
Jensen Metal fully complies with these requirements. In addition, Jensen Metal does not use any non-EU suppliers of substances and materials.
