Defra has published the summary of responses to its consultation on banning the use of microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products. The draft legislation which will bring the ban into force in 2018 in England has also been published and representations can be made on the draft until 15th October. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be introducing their own laws on their own timescales to ensure that the ban will apply across the whole of the UK.
