Restriction of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in firefighting foams



Published
ECHA investigated the environmental and health risks posed by using PFASs in firefighting foams at the request of the European Commission. The Agency concluded that an EU-wide restriction is justified as the risks posed by PFASs are currently not adequately controlled and releases should be minimised.

A six-month consultation starts on 23 March and will be open for anyone to give evidence-based comments on the restriction proposal.

This info session explained the restriction process and helped those interested to take part in the consultation.
