Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, welcomes the opportunity to comment on the proposed restriction for the group of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). The competent authorities for REACH of the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are currently preparing a REACH Annex XV Restriction Dossier. They are considering proposing EU-wide measures covering all PFAS.

Our technology industries, major downstream users and article manufacturers are fully committed to reducing the content of hazardous substances in their products to support a more circular economy.
