How can you prepare for the upcoming EU REACH Microplastic Restrictions?

The EU REACH restriction on microplastics was published in September 2023.  It impacts any solid, synthetic, non-biodegradable polymer in any cosmetic product, and will therefore have an extremely significant impact on all cosmetic product categories.

There is a number of tools developed by CTPA, Cosmetics Europe (the European personal care association) and the European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients (EFfCI) that help companies assess the impact of the microplastics restriction on the products within their portfolio, and how to plan for compliance.

Learn about the available guidance and tools that you can use to help with the understanding of the restriction and with the assessment of the impact on your business.  Join CTPA at its webinar on the EU REACH microplastics restriction on 27 June 2024 at 10.00-11.30.  The webinar aims to explain companies what the requirements under this restriction are, from those related to ingredients and formulations, as well as product labelling and reporting obligations.

The webinar will cover the following key topics:

  1. What is a microplastic and how to assess if your ingredients are in scope
  2. Timelines and transition periods
  3. Tools to help companies plan for compliance
  4. FAQs and case studies
  5. Possible legislative activity in the UK

A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
