European "Food safe" regulation

Page 31 appears suggest that potters should perform testing only if they use problematic materials... this is very reasonable, but I do not find evidence in the legislation...

I spotted the same thing! But this document is only a consultation document for laying the basis for future legislation (perhaps 2018). As I understand it at the moment, technically we should test pots even if we know that there are no problematic materials, in order to provide documented, verified evidence. It seems (from the consultation paper) that the problems this raises for artisan potters has been recognised, and may well be taken into account in the revision of the legislation. It's quite clear to me that almost no-one actually does this at the moment.

Also encouraging is the indication that the new framework of regulations will be actively disseminated to those it affects - I'm hoping this means we will all know where we stand in black and white terms!
