Upcoming restriction on the use microplastics in all consumer and professional products
ECHA Registry of restriction intentions
Scope of the restriction: Restricting the use of intentionally added microplastic particles to consumer or professional use products of any kind.
Reason: The Commission has requested ECHA to prepare an Annex XV restriction dossier concerning the use of intentionally added microplastic particles to consumer or professional use products of any kind.
Remarks: Stakeholders are requested to provide relevant information to ECHA during the Annex XV Restriction Dossier process, either in any call for evidence or seperately during the process. This information will be used, amongst other issues, to determine if any derogations are required for the potential restriction as these cannot be proposed without adequate risk and socio-economic information. If a derogation is not proposed by the Dossier Submitter then it will be incumbent on the relevant stakeholders to do so during any public consultation process with a full risk and socio-economic justification accompanying it.
