BRUSSELS - Safer chemicals NGO ChemSec says it has consulted with 53 leading brands on the proposed European Union (EU) ban on the use of PFAS chemicals and that all are in favour of restrictions.

The EU proposals - which look set to be delayed beyond the target date of 2025 - would ban the use and production of the entire group of PFAS to avoid one being replaced with another in what ChemSec terms "regrettable substitution".

Dubbed "forever chemicals" for their durability in the environment, PFAS are widely used as a waterproof coating on textiles - and also for non-stick pans and firefighting equipment - and have been linked with major health issues including liver damage, thyroid disease and cancer.
