The UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is currently gathering information and evidence about firefighting foams containing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). They are seeking input from stakeholders who are prepared to engage in ongoing dialogue throughout the process of implementing restrictions on these substances. The HSE is particularly interested in gathering data from those with knowledge about PFAS or their alternatives in firefighting foams, specifically within the context of Great Britain.

The areas of interest include the manufacturing processes, importation details, usage patterns, available alternatives to PFAS, hazardous properties, environmental impact, waste management, and relevant standards for firefighting foams. This call for evidence is directed at companies involved in the production, importation, distribution, and retail of firefighting foams, as well as professional users, trade and environmental associations, consumer organizations, and other relevant parties holding pertinent information.
