NGO Comments on the EU's Draft PFOA Law

IPEN has joined 15 public interest NGOs and networks in providing critical comments on the draft European Union (EU) law on PFOA and PFOA-related compounds. In a letter dated 4 December 2019, NGOs noted that the proposed limit for PFOA in consumer products is not protective and not consistent with updated scientific information on the extreme toxicity of PFOA. NGOs also revealed that many of the proposed exemptions in the EU draft law are not justified due to the existence of safer alternatives.
