MDSS came across this regulation and it shows that the regulation can be very granular and, in fact, may lead to additional requirements for very specific products. 

The aim of this Regulation is reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment and also establishing “harmonized marking specifications”, i.e. an additional symbol to be added to affected product labels. 

Beside e.g. cups for beverages, tobacco products, etc. this Regulation also covers “wet wipes, i.e. pre-wetted personal care and domestic wipes” (see Annex II).
