SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a Consumer Compact article looking at the issue of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in consumer products.
PFAS are a diverse and expanding group of synthetic chemicals that are used in a wide variety of consumer goods due to their water, grease and oil-repellent properties. These ‘forever chemicals’ are now recognized as carcinogenic, toxic to reproduction, harmful to fetus development and endocrine disruptors, and across the world governments are starting to regulate their use.
SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the problem of PFAS, the regulatory landscape and the solutions available to manufacturers.
Read the original Consumer Compact article, ‘Meeting PFAS Requirements for Consumer Goods’.
SGS provides a comprehensive range of testing and consultancy services to support manufacturers and suppliers operating in all consumer products sectors. Their four-step approach ensures compliance with relevant market legislation and can provide guidance on alternatives when a proscribed PFAS has been identified.
