Project Passport helps companies communicate product safety and  compliance information more efficiently.Project Passport, developed by a work group in the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Packaging Materials Committee (FDCPMC), is a collection of resources, available free as a service to the industry, that provide companies with a more effective way to communicate product safety and compliance information about packaging raw materials, components and articles moving through the food supply chain. It creates a recognizable and adaptable system whereby regulatory information can be transmitted to buyers, processors, brand owners and officials.

    Read the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guideline for the Plastics Food Packaging Supply Chain, which serves as a general reference tool for companies and facilities throughout the plastic packaging supply chain, from resin manufacturer through packaging converter. This document does not establish a GMP program that would be appropriate for any particular facility. Rather, this document serves as a guide for topics and areas that should be considered during development of a GMP program.
