The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) conducted an assessment on the health and environmental risks posed by intentionally added microplastics. In response to the assessment, the Agency determined that a restriction on the substances was warranted. The proposal for the restriction covers a wide range of uses in consumer and professional products. If implemented, the Agency determined the restriction could reduce emissions of microplastics by approximately 400,000 tons over 20 years.
