ASTM Subcommittee Will Develop Standards on PFAS in Consumer Products

ASTM has announced that a new subcommittee will develop standards on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that are present in consumer products. ASTM describes PFAS as “a group of chemicals that are used to make fluoropolymer coatings and products that resist heat, oil, stains, grease and water.” The new subcommittee (F15.81) will operate under the jurisdiction of ASTM’s consumer products committee (F15). According to ASTM, the new subcommittee “will develop standards that provide guidance on how to prepare and analyze a wide variety of consumer product samples for PFAS.” ASTM “welcomes participation in the development of its standards. Chemical engineers, analytical chemists, and advocacy group technical personnel are particularly encouraged to join the subcommittee.” More information is available online regarding ASTM membership.
