Polymers and Microplastics: How is the EU Regulating Them?
Chemical Watch training course on the regulation of polymers and microplastics.
Handling polymers requires companies to meet certain legal obligations. However, these are often different from those for other substances. For example, the REACH Regulation exempts polymers from its stipulations on registration and evaluation, but not for authorisation and restriction.
Most significantly, however, the regulatory landscape for polymers and microplastics is about to change fundamentally. For companies it is crucial to properly understand what obligations are relevant now and what is on the horizon.
This training course will:
give you insights into how polymers are currently dealt with under the REACH Regulation;
discuss commonalities and differences with other substances in the context of broader EU chemicals legislation; and
give you an overview of where the EU’s plans for registration and restrictions schemes for both polymers and microplastics are heading.
Expert Marko Sušnik will guide you through the regulatory labyrinth, discuss any questions you have and share his professional experience with you.
This training course is limited to 25 delegates, and you'll be encouraged to raise your hand and ask questions throughout the course – just as you would in a classroom environment.
