The proposal to ban PFAS presented by the European Chemicals Agency ECHA envisages banning all compounds in this substance class, which contains well over 10,000 substances, with transional periods of between 18 months and 12 years. The material PTFE (CAS number 9002-84-0) would also be affected by a blanket ban!
