Subject of the call
Call for evidence on the use of intentionally added microplastic particles in products of any kind.
Objective of the call
ECHA has recently announced that, at the request of the European Commission, it will investigate the need for a restriction on the placing on the market and/or use of ‘intentionally added’ microplastic particles in products or uses that ‘intentionally release’ microplastic particles to the environment; we consider both of these as ‘intentional uses’ of microplastic particles. This call is intended to gather information on all possible intentional uses of microplastic particles in products. The information gathered will be used to determine whether these uses pose a risk on an EU-wide basis and assess the socio-economic impacts of any potential restriction.
Target group
Companies (manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, importers etc.), trade associations, scientific bodies and any other stakeholders holding relevant information relating to the intentional use of microplastic particles.

Background note

Calls for comments and evidence allow interested parties to signal their interest and express their views and concerns in the preparatory phase of the restriction proposal. They also let interested parties comment on the different documents under preparation in ECHA in relation to restrictions, such as reports on substances in articles and guidelines on restriction entries.

Additional information to justify or support comments made is also welcomed. The information gathered will provide an input into developing Annex XV restriction dossiers or other documents. When we open a call for comments and evidence, we intend to give parties who otherwise might not have been identified and consulted a chance to submit information.

The calls for comments and evidence do not take the place of the public consultation on restriction proposals developed by Member States or ECHA, which forms a standard part of the restriction process.

Consultations close at 23:59 Helsinki time.
