POPs Recast Regulation of the EU


Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are initially controlled by the EU in April 2004, under Regulation (EC) No 850/2004, which formed a common legal framework for the measures to eliminate the production, placing on the market and use of intentionally produced POPs.

Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 has been substantially amended several times since its publication, and a Recast Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 has been published on 20 June 2019 and will become effective on 15 July 2019.

Manufacturers and economic stakeholders should be aware of the changes as stipulated here as a summary or refer to the regulation in details.
