PFAS Regulation

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are synthetic chemicals often called “forever chemicals” due to their strong carbon-fluorine bonds. Exposure to PFAS can lead to health problems like reduced metabolism, fertility issues, growth concerns, thyroid diseases, cancers, and weakened immune systems.

As awareness of PFAS risks grows, regulations are increasing to reduce their presence in supply chains. The US and EU have strategies to manage PFAS. In the US, the EPA proposed a rule in June 2021 for reporting PFAS under the Toxic Substances Control Act. The EU has various regulations, including REACH, Stockholm Convention, MDR, CLP, and Drinking Water Directive, addressing PFAS.
