 Inspections in this pilot project will begin in 2023 and continue throughout 12 participating countries during 2024. The objective is to protect consumers from being exposed to PFCAs and related substances, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which have been identified as substances of very high concern due to their hazardous properties.

The project will also raise awareness about the restrictions under the REACH and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) regulations among companies that sell cosmetics and other consumer products. It was triggered by cases of PFOA, the use of which is restricted under the POPs Regulation, found in cosmetics sold on the EU market.
