The use of PFASs is ubiquitous across industries, making it more important than ever for product safety professionals to understand what their products are made of, find safer alternatives and ensure compliance.

Increasing regulation of PFASs presents a real challenge for those in chemicals management. Authorities in Europe are developing plans that could phase out PFASs; and in the US, several state-level bills are calling for a ban.

Keeping up with changing PFASs regulation is now crucial for product safety professionals managing chemicals in a range of sectors; from food packaging, to children’s products, to firefighting foam and more.
