Norway adopts PFOA sales ban

Written by John Mowbray

testubeOSLO – Norway has become the first European country to introduce legislation that bans the sale of products and textiles containing PFOA. While Norway’s decisiveness on this issue is welcome, Ecotextile News understands there are calls to extend the transition period for this ban as there is currently no agreed procedure to test down to the trace levels that Norway’s Climate and Environment Ministry is talking about – namely 0.001 per cent PFOA in a mixture, 1.0 ug/m2 in textiles and 0.1 per cent of other products’ ‘constituent parts’.
