Regulatory Overview on PFAS in the United States

PFAS continues to be an area of focus for EPA and state agencies, as well as an ever-increasing litigation risk for companies that have manufactured, imported, processed, or otherwise used products including chemicals belonging to this sizable class of synthetic compounds.

Now more than ever, businesses with past or present operations involving PFAS are encouraged to take proactive steps to mitigate potential liabilities associated with these chemicals.
