Nordic authorities test more than 150 chemical products and objects - PFOA is abundant, especially in ski creams
A joint project between the Nordic supervisory authorities tested a total of 158 different chemical products and objects, such as ski creams, mats, outdoor clothing and shoes.
A surveillance project led by the Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency (Tukes) tested perfluorinated alkyl compounds, or so-called PFASs, from various chemical products and articles. At present, the European Union Regulation on Persistent Organic Pollutants restricts the use of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in PFAS in various products. PFAS compounds whose use is not yet restricted but which will be restricted in the future were also measured in the products.
