Do nonstick coatings have to meet any special government regulations?

There are various regulations around the world with which nonstick coatings must comply. In the US, nonstick coatings must comply with regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory bodies. Note: The FDA does not formally "approve" of coatings. Such coatings must comply with the high standards set by the FDA for use with food, making them "FDA-compliant".

So when you are buying, developing or sourcing your products, make sure the supplier is able to provide you with an FDA compliance letter or other documentation proving the nonstick complies with the FDA, European Union and any other regulations that may apply. In addition, since many brands of nonstick can have several different formulas or series, make sure to confirm the exact one that will be used on your product.

Nonstick coatings have been used by millions of consumers for 60 years. They are totally safe when used as directed.
