BRUSSELS - Proposed European Union (EU) restrictions on the use of all per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) look set to be delayed beyond the target date of 2025.

The five countries preparing the proposal, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, have pushed back their submission to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) by six months to January 2023 due to the complexity and amount of information received.

Dubbed 'forever chemicals' because of their durability in the environment, PFAS are widely used in the textile industry for their water, stain and oil-repellent properties, as well as in other products such as non-stick cookware.
