In an article published on November 29, 2017, the International Panel on Chemical Pollution (IPCP) reported on an “international workshop to support dialogue between scientists and regulators on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs).” The workshop was hosted on November 9-10, 2017 by the Safety and Environmental Technology Group (SETG) at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Academic and government scientists, as well as regulators gave presentations and held discussions “to identify common goals and potential cooperative actions between the science and policy sides to work towards a global effort to address PFASs over the next 5-10 years.” Ahead of the workshop, SETG had prepared a “thought starter” document outlining how PFASs could be addressed internationally. The document is available on IPCP’s website.
