We are glad to invite you to our upcoming webinar
“MICROPLASTICS: regulations, standards and the role of laboratories”
15 February 2023, 13:00 - 17:00 CET
16 February 2023, 10:00 - 14:00 CET
EUROLAB is organising an online event on the key topic of microplastics, with the purpose of raising awareness on the framework of EU legislations and standardisation activities in the field.
The event will also identify key issues and aspects of concern raised by key stakeholders, such as: the growth in microplastic pollution, environmental and health risks posed by microplastics, as well as the important role of laboratories in identifying microplastics and conducting chemical analysis of plastics.
The first part will outline the state of art of EU laws and policies regulating microplastics, and the currently used laboratory utilities, including the industry perspective and its role on how to possibly approach the issue in a more sustainable way. The second part will cover more technical topics, including methods for microplastics investigation and the role of standards and standardisation initiatives to tackle the issue of microplastics (CEN and ISO).
Confirmed speakers include high-level representatives from the European Chemicals Agency, European Commission DG ENV, CENELEC, ISO, laboratory and industry sectors.
The detailed agenda is available here.
The webinar has a participation fee of 80€, information on the payment will follow your registration.
We are looking very much forward to seeing you at our webinar and listening to your questions and concerns on the issue of microplastics.
