In September 2023 the European Commission has published the Restriction on microplastics (Commission Regulation (EU) 2023/2055). The Restriction is expected to largely impact chemical industries as many commercial sectors are involved, including manufactures, importers and downstream users of:

  • Cosmetics
  • Fragrances
  • Detergents
  • Fertilising products
  • Plant protections products,
  • Biocidal products,
  • Synthetic sport surfaces,
  • Food additives,
  • Medical devices and in vitro diagnostic devices,
  • Medicinal products and veterinary medicinal products.

The Restriction imposes the ban on placing on the market of synthetic polymer microparticles (microplastics) starting from 2027 for specific market sectors. Depending on the commercial areas, on the containment of microplastics and on physical-chemical properties of the products during end use, some derogations from the ban are provided for by the Restriction. Nevertheless, such derogations establish regulatory actions to manufacturers, importers and downstream users of microplastics and of products containing microplastics starting from 2025.

Thanks to the technical excellence of our team and to the long-standing expertise on chemical Regulatory Affairs spanning all chemical business specialties, TEAM mastery can provide technical and regulatory support to industries for the full compliance to the Restriction on microplastics.

More in detail, our services for technical support include:

  • Identification of microplastics
  • Testing strategy
  • Assistance on testing of: Physical state, Particle size, Water solubility, Biodegradation, Coating characterization
  • Evaluation of exemption for natural polymers
  • Evaluation of physical properties during end use
  • Evaluation of containment/release/incorporation during end use.

Our services for Regulatory assistance include:

  • Evaluation of the field of application
  • Instructions for use and disposal
  • Labelling and packaging
  • Notification to ECHA
  • Communication to Competent Authorities
  • Communication up/downstream the Supply Chain.
