Position Paper on Universal PFAS Restriction Proposal

To achieve a practical, enforceable and workable Universal PFAS restriction, these key elements need to be addressed:

  1. Ensure all PFAS uses are known to avoid supply chain disruptions and unintentional elimination of key applications;
  2. Prevent a ban on the use of critical PFAS-containing pieces of equipment in industrial plants;
  3. When assessing PFAS, keep in mind that they differ from one another;
  4. Consider the importance of PFAS in achieving EU policy objectives;
  5. Address economic impacts of the proposal along the entire value chain; and
  6. Robustly review the enforceability of the proposal.
