The law transposes the European directive 2019/904 into Czech legislation.

The Czech government has approved a draft bill to restrict the impact of selected plastic products and has sent it for approval by the Czech Parliament. Consumption of such plastic products should thus be roughly 1.77bn pieces per year lower. The Czech Ministry of the Environment (MŽP) further stated that the ban of their launch on the market was expected after July 1, 2021. The adherence to the law will be inspected by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority, the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority, and regional public-health offices. The law transposes the European directive 2019/904 into Czech legislation.
