9 II 2024 - European Commission published a proposal to ban bisphenol A (BPA) for food container material 

This EC draft proposes a ban on BPA in food contact materials with a 36-month transition period for varnishes and coatings and professional production equipment; and 18 months for everything else. Currently available information says the restriction will come into force in late 2025 or early 2026.

This draft is published after the last November 2023 European Parliament vote about bisphenol A and after the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) issued an updated scientific opinion finding that current dietary exposure to BPA is unsafe and lowered the tolerable daily intake (TDI) by a factor of 20’000.

The draft is open to public comment until March 8, 2024. Reference: European Commission (February 9, 2024) - Food safety: restrictions on bisphenol A (BPA) and other bisphenols in food contact materials

12 VI 2024 update from European Commission:  « taking into account the latest scientific evidence and in view of protecting the health of citizens and ensuring the highest food safety standards, Member States have endorsed a proposal from the Commission to ban Bisphenol A (BPA) in food contact materials (FCM). This means that, after a phase-out period, the chemical will no longer be allowed to be used in these products in the EU. »
