January 18, 2023

Claigan Environmental Inc. will present a webinar on how companies are meeting their PFAS compliance obligations. Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are very diverse with simple and complicated uses. Claigan’s webinar will go over how an example company complies with PFAS reporting requirements and restrictions.

Some PFAS substances (such as fluoropolymers) are used intentionally in products for their specialized properties. However, some PFAS substances (such as PFOA) are unintentional contaminants or byproducts of fluoropolymer manufacturing. A range of PFAS substances are used for specialized applications in water proofing of fabrics and medical devices. This diversity makes it very difficult for companies to comply with the emerging PFAS regulations.

Claigan’s webinar will use an example company and show how it complies with the PFAS reporting requirements and restrictions. The compliance processes for PFAS reporting will focus on PFAS reporting in Maine, and the compliance processes for PFAS restriction will focus on the EU POP and REACH Restrictions. However, similar global regulations such as expected US Federal PFAS reporting requirements, and Prop 65 and Canadian PFOA restriction will discussed. Claigan will show the processes used for legacy products and for new designs. The processes will be explained in detail with a backdrop of their related regulatory outputs and due diligence requirements.

The main topics to be covered in this webinar are –

  • Reporting vs restriction
  • The situation of an example company
  • Process for legacy products
  • Process for new designs
  • Reporting outputs
  • Restriction outcomes

Due to the interest in these topics, two (2) webinars will be held on January 18 to accommodate a larger audience.

Time: 10am and 2pm EST

Duration: 1 hour plus Q&A
