Does anyone have any information concerning legislation covering inks to be
used in microwavable packaging ?

Inks in question would not be in direct food contact (reverse printed on
polyester film laminated to paper). Major issue is connected with
decomposition products from all components as a result of exposure to
elevated temperatures typically 200 C - 300 C for 10 mins.

Thanks
