Pre-market resources for industry

ECPA is engaged in stewardship activities at all stages of the product lifecycle. Most stewardship activities cover the product use-phase and are described in the 'What we do' section of this website; below, you can find stewardship project resources relevant to the ‘pre-market’ and post-use phases. The below industry-targeted stewardship activities primarily aim to guide and streamline standards including the submission of product dossiers to the proper labelling of products to water monitoring.
