Intertek Participates in American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education Panel Discussion on PFAS

22 November 2021

Intertek, a leading provider of total quality assurance to industries around the world, will be a proud panellist of the American Law Institute (ALI) Continuing Legal Education (CLE) webcast, What’s on the horizon for PFAS regulation? EPA rule-making, remediation and ‘roadmap’, December 6, 2021.

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a group of chemicals made from carbon and fluorine, which include chemicals known as PFOS, PFOA, GenX, etc. PFAS can be readily released into the environment, contaminating air, soil and water, including drinking water sources. These chemical compounds are very resistant to decay and take longer to decompose in the environment and in the human body.

Regulators and policy makers in the United States, Canada, the EU, and Australia have developed guidelines or standards to address environmental and human health issues associated with PFAS. Regulations around the world have banned, banned or restricted their use in a variety of products. These regulations are constantly evolving. PFAS are carefully reviewed to better understand their environmental and human toxicity, with the goal of enabling the categorization of PFAS compounds for more effective regulation. It is more important than ever to consider the future landscape of PFAS accountability.

In ALI’s 90-minute CLE webcast, panelists will discuss how PFASs are used in the supply chain, how they can be identified, and what PFAS users are doing to reduce their use. The panel will provide the latest information on regulatory and legislative activities at the federal and state levels and offer an overview of what to expect in 2022.

Intertek expert Rose Passarella, Head of the Chemistry group at Intertek Assuris, will present, PFAS in the supply chain – where it can be, how to find it and what to do about it, as part of the webcast.
