Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical found in some plastics and used in the manufacture of epoxy resins. It is commonly found in the linings of some food cans as it helps protect the cans from corrosion and so allows longer storage and prevents leaching and spoilage. BPA has been the subject of controversy in recent years and we have been considering whether to ban its use in Soil Association organic standards if the scientific evidence supports us doing so.

We want to gather information about how much BPA is currently used for packaging Soil Association certified products. If you are a licensee who uses, or has used packaging containing BPA, please complete this short survey.
