‘Multiheaded Hydra’ of PFAS Products Under California Scrutiny
09.01.2020 | Bloomberg Environment
Jeffrey Karp was quoted in the article “‘Multiheaded Hydra’ of PFAS Products Under California Scrutiny,” which was published by Bloomberg Environment on January 8, 2020.
The California Department of Toxic Substances Control is planning a series of workshops and rulemakings in 2020 related to PFAS under its Safer Consumer Products regulations, which require manufacturers to examine if a listed chemical is necessary in a product and if there are safer alternatives.
Jeff comments that listing will have a substantial impact on the manufacturing and sales of these products in California, but that listing an entire class rather than individual chemicals could make it easier for manufacturers to push back.
