Spotlight on PFASs

Understand the latest regulatory action and what it means for your products

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a group of man-made chemicals facing global regulatory scrutiny, particularly with authorities in the EU and North America.

For example, the European Commission’s chemicals strategy for sustainability promises a comprehensive action plan to address the PFAS group of chemicals, including phasing them out of consumer products. In the US, the widespread use of PFASs in a variety of industries has led to several state level bills calling for a ban.

Staying on top of developments in PFAS regulation is now essential for product safety professionals to meet compliance goals in sectors as diverse as food packaging, children’s products, firefighting foam and more.
