How Much Time do you Have to Prepare for the Upcoming EU REACH Microplastics Restriction?

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.

After assessing the scope of the restriction on their products, it is important for companies to plan the work towards compliance by the relevant transition periods. The restriction outlines transition periods relevant for formulation updates, as well as labelling and reporting obligations. 

Learn about the relevant timings of the restriction, by joining 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.
