ECHA receives PFASs restriction proposal from five national authorities
The national authorities of Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden have submitted a proposal to ECHA to restrict per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) under REACH, the European Union’s (EU) chemicals regulation. ECHA will publish the detailed proposal, one of the broadest in the EU’s history, on 7 February 2023.
Helsinki, 13 January 2023 – The restriction proposal comes after the five authorities found risks in the manufacture, placement on the market and use of PFASs that are not adequately controlled and need to be addressed throughout the EU and the European Economic Area.
ECHA will run the required administrative checks before the proposed restriction and supporting documents are made available on 7 February 2023. On the same day, the national authorities will host a hybrid media event in Brussels from 11:00 to 12:30 (CET). An info session for industry, NGOs and other stakeholders will take place later.
Over the past three years, the five national authorities have investigated different PFASs, their uses and the risks they may pose to people and the environment. They held two public consultations to gather evidence on the use of these substances and examined all information received.click here for Reference.

“It's time for companies to take on 'scope 3' emissions to tackle the climate impact of their products” opinions WEF in ongoing Davos conference.
Direct emissions are the primary focus for most companies, but it’s not nearly enough to stunt global warming and deliver on the Paris Agreement.
Since scope 3 emissions usually account for more than 70% of a business's carbon footprint but aren’t generally reported on ESG (environmental, social and governance) reports,
shifting focus to this class is crucial in reaching climate targets. For more visit
