Position paper - Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Restriction proposal

16 Jun 2023

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is currently discussing the restriction of per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances. To secure long-term European manufacturing, this socio-economic analysis must not only include the impact on specific applications but also the impact on transatlantic trade and foreign long-term investments. Not taking these into account will ultimately have strong repercussions on the EU’s strategic autonomy and on many key policies, including the Green Deal ambitions.
