On 18th December 2020 the JRC launched a survey to stakeholders on their requirements regarding test materials for micro(nano) plastic research. The bottom line of this initiative is to better understand which materials may be included in a future repository, as well as to understand the interest of stakeholders in sourcing from such a repository.

The survey included a wide stakeholder community of scientists, monitoring laboratories and regulators. The survey deadline is 15 January.
