Plastic pellets under REACH

A briefing calling for the EU to strengthen their reporting and labelling requirements for plastic pellets to enable effective supply chain legislation.


EU legislation mandating supply chain accreditation is widely accepted as the most effective means of eliminating the second largest source of microplastic pollution in Europe -plastic pellets. To this end, there is a clear and timely need presented by the proposed Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation (REACH) restriction on intentional uses of microplastics to put in place measures that would support the development of this legislation.

This briefing was published in collaboration with the Rethink Plastic Alliance.
