ECHA – Stakeholder workshop on intentional uses of microplastic particles

The workshop was organised to supplement the information obtained from the recent call for evidence by facilitating dialogue between stakeholders on the key issues relevant to a potential restriction on the intentional uses of microplastic particles under REACH.

Fifty nine invited participants from across industry, Member States, academia, NGOs, together with ECHA staff, discussed, among other things, the appropriate definition of microplastics, the risks posed by microplastics, understanding the uses of microplastics, the technical function of microplastics in these uses, the release and exposure of microplastics in the environment from these uses, and the various socio-economic implications (to industry and society overall) of a restriction.
