Call for evidence on possible restriction of microplastics
The purpose of the call for evidence is to collect information to assess the impacts of a possible restriction on intentionally added microplastics in products of any kind.
ECHA is inviting stakeholders to send information that could help with the preparation of a possible restriction on intentional use of microplastic particles in products. ECHA is particularly interested in information about the uses of microplastic particles, their alternatives as well as the costs and other impacts of a potential restriction. The call for evidence is open until 11 May 2018.
ECHA will organise an online information session on 12 March from 11:00 to 12:30 EET, GMT +2. The purpose of the session is to clarify the scope of the call for evidence and answer any remaining questions. The session is targeted at stakeholders planning to provide relevant information for the preparation of the restriction proposal. Register: Information session - 12 March 2018.
