ECHA Webinar on PFAS F-gases Explains Consultation Process

ECHA PFAS F-gases

On April 5, the five European chemical agencies submitting the PFAS Restriction Intention (Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway and Sweden) have organised a webinar to explain to interested stakeholders the submission process.

These agencies have proposed a REACH restriction to address the risks to the environment and human health from the manufacture, placing on the market and use of PFAS. The scope of the restriction includes multiple commonly used refrigerants, such as those listed in the table below.
