Survey on PFAS and alternatives: call for information
The five countries have published summaries of the information they have gathered about PFAS so far. In addition, they have created a questionnaire in to gather further information to fill knowledge gaps. This survey is primarily aimed at relevant industry and industry associations, but is also aimed at companies that produce or have knowledge of alternatives to PFAS.
The aim of the survey is to ensure that the information about PFAS and alternatives is accurate and representative of the market situation so that we have the best basis for a knowledge-based restriction proposal for next year. Among other things, such information may form the basis for assessing any derogations or special conditions for certain applications of PFAS that are particularly important to society and where alternatives are not available.
Deadline for survey completion is 17 October 2021
In order to make such assessments, the five countries depend on cooperation with the industry and organisations, as they often have the most detailed information required in such assessments.
The questionnaire is open until 17 October 2021 and is available here.
We ask relevant companies to review the relevant information and to report necessary corrections or provide additional information.
