EU draft Act on Persistent organic pollutants (POPs)- perfluoroctanoic acid (PFOA) open for public consultation
The Commission aims to protect human health and the environment by eliminating or restricting the production and use of POPs, as defined in the Stockholm Convention.
This act concerns PFOA, its salts and PFOA-related compounds (included in Annex I of Regulation (EU) 2019/1021). It amends the PFOA concentration as an unintentional trace contaminant in substances, mixtures and articles, and removes a specific exemption that is no longer needed in the EU.CONTINUE READING ON: ec.europa.eu
