HOW TO PREPARE FOR

NEW PFAS RULES COMING IN 2020

The management of PFAS CHEMICALS (THE “FOREVER CHEMICALS”) is one of the biggest issues in environmental risk management today.

The United States and Canada are both ramping up their strategies to deal with PFOS and PFOA with probable high penalties for non-compliance.

This article explains the recent history and the current and expected regulatory situation.

Throughout 2020 Americans and Canadians will encounter new regulatory compliance requirements for the PFAS class of chemicals about which we’ve written before.

Developers, environmental consultants, lenders and insurers all need to stay abreast of these developments. Penalties for non-compliance run high for regulated stakeholders, and the rollout of complex new statutes is confusing.

DID YOU KNOW?

ERIS’ US Database Reports include and highlight PFAS records…

Many state-level environmental protection agencies have compiled information regarding sites at which Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) have been released; have contaminated or are suspected of having contaminated properties or groundwater; or where these chemicals have been, or are suspected of having been manufactured or used.

ERIS compiles these data, along with Federal records of PFAS releases and contamination, to ensure that we have the most comprehensive PFAS data for your searches.
