Broad restriction of intentional uses of microplastics

ECHA is working on the world’s broadest restriction of intentional uses of microplastics.

ECHA’s proposal to restrict intentionally-added microplastics is the most comprehensive restriction initiative in the world for reducing emissions from intentional uses of microplastics. Following an extensive consultation in 2019, the Agency has updated its proposal while remaining independent and following a transparent and evidence-based scientific approach.
