PFAS testing: Prepare now for legal changes

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are currently attracting particular attention in international markets, because the group of chemicals has been found to be highly prevalent in the environment. This is of particular importance because PFAS are both harmful to the environment and to health and are highly persistent.

In the US-american market, some states have already introduced restrictions on the use of PFAS in clothing or food packaging, and in the EU there is a proposal that, in its current form, would represent one of the largest bans on chemicals in Europe.

Respond to the issue now!
