EEB | Illegal delay flattens high hopes for restriction on microplastics

Your substances


This much anticipated restriction seeks to limit the production and use of intentionally added microplastics in consumer and professional products. According to the EU’s REACH Regulation, the Commission had the obligation to come up with a final proposal by May 2021, three months after the publication of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) science-based opinion. With no restriction in sight and without an explanation for the reason for this postponement, the EEB and ClientEarth denounced the delay as illegal.
