Chapter 890, Designation of PFOS as a Priority Chemical
03/26/2019 03:56 PM EDT

The Department is proposing to adopt a new rule that will designate perfluorooctane sulfonic acid ("PFOS") as a priority chemical and require reporting for certain product categories that contains this regulated chemical. The proposed rule applies to manufacturers of specified product categories that contain intentionally added amounts of PFOS, which is often used to make clothing water repellant, among many other uses.
