The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published in spring 2023 the dossier on the universal restriction of PFAS (uPFAS), which proposes a comprehensive ban on the production, use and placing on the market of PFAS in Europe. The restriction proposals are subject to a six-month consultation for everyone, and the one on the uPFAS restriction ends on September 25. EEB has now submitted a second contribution on specific aspects, such as uses in joints and gaskets, uses in food contact materials and information on other regulation affecting PFAS. We aim to support an ambitious restriction of all PFAS bringing nuance into often over-simplified discussions.
