PFAS is one of the hottest environmental topics today. Despite the thousands of industrial PFAS applications and PFAS-containing consumer products that exist, the quantities manufactured and imported, the exposure risks, long-term consequences to health and the environment, and the need to regulate certain uses are not well understood or documented. Similar to the TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) required by The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (2016), the latest rule entitled “The National Defense Authorization Act of 2020, Section 7351 requires the EPA/TSCA to call for data on PFAS. However, unlike the previous CDR rule, this MANDATORY reporting is much broader in defining what chemicals need to be reported, contains very limited exemptions to reporting (no small manufacturer exemption) and no quantity thresholds under which reporting becomes unnecessary. This significantly increases the number of manufacturing companies who will need to comply with this data call. Keep an eye out for Part IV later this summer.
