PFAS – WORK AT THE OECD
IDEAS FOR FUTURE ACTIVITIES
Global Forum on the Environment - PFAS
Eeva LEINALA, OECD
The main objectives of the Programme are to:
▪ Assist OECD Member countries' efforts to protect human
health and the environment through improving chemical
safety and biosafety
▪ Make chemical control policies more transparent and
efficient and save resources for government and industry;
and
▪ Prevent unnecessary distortions in the trade of chemicals,
chemical products and products of modern biotechnology.
OECD ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND SAFETY
(EHS) PROGRAMME
38 Member countries, many partner countries and other stakeholders work together to develop
and co-ordinate activities on chemical safety and biosafety on an international basis. One of the
core aspects of the work relates to the Mutual Acceptance of Data.

https://oe.cd/gfe-pfass
• Established in 2012 in response to ICCM
Resolution II/5;
• Set up to facilitate exchange of information on
PFAS, and to support a global transition towards
safer alternatives;
• Brings together experts from OECD member &
non-member countries in academia,
governments, industry, IGOs, NGOs.
Background to the OECD/UNEP Global PFC Group

Provides:
• a revised PFAS definition to comprehensively
reflect the universe of PFASs;
• practical guidance on how to use the PFAS
terminology;

OECD WebPortal on PFAS and Webinars
• Work on PFAS communicated via the webportal:
https://oe.cd/pfass
• Webinars organised 1 to 3 times per year
Risk Reduction Initiatives across Countries
• Regular collection of information on risk reduction
initiatives in countries and update of the WebPortal
Information sharing: PFAS WebPortal
IDEAS FOR FUTURE WORK AT OECD
(WE ARE BUILDING OUR NEXT 4
YEAR WORKPLAN ON PFAS)
9
• Continued sharing of risk management approaches and
information on PFAS across countries
• Continued analysis of information on available and suitable
alternatives
– Also to support scale-up, support innovation, monitor transition
• Knowledge transfer of safer alternative technologies to PFAS
• Support emerging economies and developing countries in
transition to PFAS free production and consumption
10
Potential topical areas of work at International Level –
PFAS Specific
• Information on FPs (uses, alternatives) and emissions of
PFAS and other fluorinated substances from FP
production
• Information contributing to RA of PFAS – grouping,
exposure, hazards; info used for prioritization of PFAS
• Information on biomonitoring aspects - compile in more
communicable format
11
Potential topical areas of work at International Level –
PFAS Specific – Continued
• Support social scientific research on risk perception of,
and risk communication about the hazards, risks and
uncertainty on PFAS
• Collect, synthesize and include scientific evidence and
best practices in risk communication for informed
judgment and decision making on PFAS, on the OECD
web portal
• Further develop and disseminate standard methods for
measuring PFAS (various media, products)
12
Potential topical areas of work at International Level –
PFAS Specific – Continued
• Support analytical method development for regulatory
purposes
• Setting of emission limit values
• Provide information about international PFAS regulations
for water and air (with a regulation focus instead of the
PFAS focus like the fact cards)
• Encourage partners support of field testing
• Collection of best practice examples for site management
• Standardization of methods for soil investigation 13
• Continue to develop regulatory risk assessment approaches
for hazard and exposure assessment including non-animal
methods
• Guidance on evaluation and substitution – other
considerations (environmental attributes and also benefits)
beyond safety and including life-cycle considerations
• Better dialogue between primary care and environmental
public health
• Consider level of particular technical international standards
• Develop and implement transparency standards 14
Potential work at OECD or at International Level –
Broader than PFAS
Your thoughts ...? Priorities?
Will develop 4-year work plan for OECD activities on PFAS
– through our committee process.

OECD Global Forum on the Environment dedicated to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances: Ideas for future OECD activities

  • 1. PFAS – WORK AT THE OECD IDEAS FOR FUTURE ACTIVITIES Global Forum on the Environment - PFAS Eeva LEINALA, OECD
  • 2. The main objectives of the Programme are to: ▪ Assist OECD Member countries' efforts to protect human health and the environment through improving chemical safety and biosafety ▪ Make chemical control policies more transparent and efficient and save resources for government and industry; and ▪ Prevent unnecessary distortions in the trade of chemicals, chemical products and products of modern biotechnology. OECD ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND SAFETY (EHS) PROGRAMME 38 Member countries, many partner countries and other stakeholders work together to develop and co-ordinate activities on chemical safety and biosafety on an international basis. One of the core aspects of the work relates to the Mutual Acceptance of Data. http://www.oecd.org/chemicalsafety/ 2
  • 3. 3 PFAS @ the OECD https://oe.cd/pfass https://oe.cd/gfe-pfass
  • 4. • Established in 2012 in response to ICCM Resolution II/5; • Set up to facilitate exchange of information on PFAS, and to support a global transition towards safer alternatives; • Brings together experts from OECD member & non-member countries in academia, governments, industry, IGOs, NGOs. Background to the OECD/UNEP Global PFC Group http://www.oecd.org/chemicalsafety/portal-perfluorinated-chemicals/ oe.cd/pfass 4
  • 5. February 2024 5 Published in 2020 Hazard info on the alternatives - 2022 Food packaging (paper and paperboard) Published in 2022 Hazard info on the alternatives - 2024 Coatings, paints and varnishes Collect information on commercial availability & current uses of PFAS & alternatives in different industry sectors and on their hazard profile Cosmetics
  • 6. Reconciling Terminology of the Universe of PFAS: Recommendations and Practical Guidance (2022) Provides: • a revised PFAS definition to comprehensively reflect the universe of PFASs; • practical guidance on how to use the PFAS terminology; Fact Cards of PFAS a publication that provides a set of 15 fact cards on major groups of PFAS (2021). Fact Cards of PFAS - a publication that provides a set of 15 fact cards on major groups of PFAS (2021).
  • 7. Synthesis Reports on Understanding Polymeric PFAS and Their Life Cycle Side-chain Fluorinated Polymers (Published) Perfluoropolyethers (Finalisation) Fluoropolymers (Starting)
  • 8. OECD WebPortal on PFAS and Webinars • Work on PFAS communicated via the webportal: https://oe.cd/pfass • Webinars organised 1 to 3 times per year Risk Reduction Initiatives across Countries • Regular collection of information on risk reduction initiatives in countries and update of the WebPortal Information sharing: PFAS WebPortal
  • 9. IDEAS FOR FUTURE WORK AT OECD (WE ARE BUILDING OUR NEXT 4 YEAR WORKPLAN ON PFAS) 9
  • 10. • Continued sharing of risk management approaches and information on PFAS across countries • Continued analysis of information on available and suitable alternatives – Also to support scale-up, support innovation, monitor transition • Knowledge transfer of safer alternative technologies to PFAS • Support emerging economies and developing countries in transition to PFAS free production and consumption 10 Potential topical areas of work at International Level – PFAS Specific
  • 11. • Information on FPs (uses, alternatives) and emissions of PFAS and other fluorinated substances from FP production • Information contributing to RA of PFAS – grouping, exposure, hazards; info used for prioritization of PFAS • Information on biomonitoring aspects - compile in more communicable format 11 Potential topical areas of work at International Level – PFAS Specific – Continued
  • 12. • Support social scientific research on risk perception of, and risk communication about the hazards, risks and uncertainty on PFAS • Collect, synthesize and include scientific evidence and best practices in risk communication for informed judgment and decision making on PFAS, on the OECD web portal • Further develop and disseminate standard methods for measuring PFAS (various media, products) 12 Potential topical areas of work at International Level – PFAS Specific – Continued
  • 13. • Support analytical method development for regulatory purposes • Setting of emission limit values • Provide information about international PFAS regulations for water and air (with a regulation focus instead of the PFAS focus like the fact cards) • Encourage partners support of field testing • Collection of best practice examples for site management • Standardization of methods for soil investigation 13
  • 14. • Continue to develop regulatory risk assessment approaches for hazard and exposure assessment including non-animal methods • Guidance on evaluation and substitution – other considerations (environmental attributes and also benefits) beyond safety and including life-cycle considerations • Better dialogue between primary care and environmental public health • Consider level of particular technical international standards • Develop and implement transparency standards 14 Potential work at OECD or at International Level – Broader than PFAS
  • 15. Your thoughts ...? Priorities? Will develop 4-year work plan for OECD activities on PFAS – through our committee process. 15
