Here's a start. Go to www.FDA.gov and search on microwavable. Doing that,
I came up with an interesting document at
http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/opa-pmnc.html#aii11c.

It's titled: Guidance for Industry Preparation of Premarket Notifications
for Food Contact Substances -- Chemistry Recommendations, 1999.
  
Obviously, I haven't had time to read through it all, but it may be pointing
you in the right direction.

I'll do a bit more digging and let you know.

to

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
