Programme overview

Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) is an EU approved international programme aimed at improving awareness, promoting best practices and providing guidance and tools to support companies from the plastic and polymers value chain in the implementation of the necessary pellet loss prevention measures.


The initiative’s aim is to ensure that the plastic pellets, flakes and powders that pass through manufacturing facilities in Ireland are handled with the care they deserve and do not end up in our rivers or seas.


By signing up to OCS, companies make a commitment to adhere to best practice and implement systems to prevent plastic pellet loss — and that they will play their part in protecting the aquatic environment.


Led by Polymer Technology Ireland, this webinar will give participants an overview of the requirements of OCS and a practical guide to implementing the necessary steps to become a signatory of the initiative.
