Webinar – Global PFAS Regulation
Regulation of perfluoroalkyl substances in products
OTTAWA, ON, September 7, 2021 / CNW / – On September 15, 2021, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar on new global restrictions on perfluoroalkylated substances (PFAS) in products. The webinar will focus on how the new and upcoming restrictions in the US (TSCA), EU (REACH) and Canada (Canadian ban).
Perfluoroalkyl substances are a complex family of chemicals used to create waterproof coatings and in the manufacturing process of fluoropolymers such as PTFE. Due to bioaccumulation and biopersistent properties, longer chain PFAS substances are increasingly limited in products in most jurisdictions.
Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the United States has imposed notification requirements on long chain perfluoroalkyl carboxylates (LCPFAC), a subset of PFAS, in articles (physical products). At the same time, the United States proposed a new rule requiring the declaration of PFAS and fluoropolymers (such as PTFE and FKM) in products.
Meanwhile, the EU has created a new restriction in LCPFAC in products under REACH – from February 2023 and has an ongoing consultation to broadly restrict PFAS and perfluoropolumers. Canada is expected to release the LCPFAC restriction on Canada’s ban on certain substances this fall.
The main topics covered in this webinar are –
- PFAS and LCPFAC – what are they?
- US TSCA Important New Use Rule (SNUR) on LCPFAC
- Proposed US TSCA Rule on Reporting PFAS and Perfluorinated Polymers
- EU REACH Restriction of LCPFAC and the associated POP restriction of PFOA
- EU restriction intention on PFAS and fluoropolymers
- Intended Canadian restriction of the CFLPA
- High risk materials
- Compliance options
Due to the interest in these topics, two (2) webinars will be held on September 15 to accommodate a wider audience.
