Nordic Council calls for PFAS labelling

Written by John Mowbray

OSLO - In a new working paper, the Nordic Council, an inter-governmental body representing Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, has suggested swift regulatory action is required on per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs). The Council points to extensive evidence which suggests PFASs, and their degradation products are extremely persistent in the environment.

Members of the European Commission, Echa (the European Chemicals Agency) and the European Environment Agency (EEA) were all in attendance.
