EU fertilising products initiative under preparation

An initiative is under preparation concerning EU fertilising products to align biodegradability criteria for polymers to the REACH restriction on microplastics.

This initiative aims at introducing the same biodegradability criteria for polymers (other than coating and water retention agents) in EU fertilising products as those set out by the restriction on intentionally added microplastics in national fertilising products set out in the REACH Regulation. It also introduces other technical amendments.
