Consultation Paper on Managing Microbeads

18 Jan 2017

MFE has released a consultation proposing a ban on the use of microbeads in personal care products in NZ, one which we will support due to the adverse environmental effects. Submissions close with MFE on 28 February. A copy of the consultation paper can be found here and a copy of the regulatory impact assessment can be found here. Water New Zealand will be preparing a submission, but if members have views they wish to share or see included in the draft submission please let John Pfahlert know by 2 February.
