OECD Survey on per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

The OECD is aiming to collect data for a new report on PFASs and Alternatives – Commercial Availability and Current Uses (access the Terms of Reference of the future report).

A questionnaire is available (in Word or Excel) to provide information on current uses of alternatives to PFASs specifically on the three following sectors:

  • Textile and shoes: covering apparel and outerwear, workwear (worker protection, uniforms), and other textiles. Shoes include casual and protective shoes;
  • Firefighting foam; and
  • Food packaging: including paper and paperboard

Industry (chemical manufacturers and downstream users), public authorities, NGOs and academia are invited to fill-in this questionnaire.

Please note that the deadline for response is Tuesday 31 July. 

Thanks for your collaboration
