ECHA’s plans for biodegradability update

ESTC invites you to a conference call to update you on ECHA’s proposal for a more stringent definition on biodegradability. This will affect PLA based infills.

This conference call will address the following topics:

  • ECHA’s restriction dossier on intentionally added microplastics;
  • PLA infill and biodegradability;
  • Request for greater evidence by ECHA’s Risk Assessment Committee (RAC) for greater evidence;
  • ECHA’s timeline;
  • Necessary steps to be taken.

Friday 24 July, 4pm CET

Conference Call (details will be sent by email)
