A federal advisory committee recommends that federal agencies phase out the purchase of products containing PFAS, known as "forever chemicals," to address environmental and health risks. The General Services Administration's Acquisition Policy Federal Advisory Committee suggests actions such as limiting PFAS in purchasing contracts, removing products with these chemicals from the supply chain, and requiring companies to confirm PFAS absence when cost-competitive alternatives are available. The move, if adopted, could significantly impact the $650 billion government procurement sector, encouraging the market to provide safer alternatives to PFAS-containing products.
