Insights On REACH, RoHS & TSCA From Assent Evolve Conference 2022

Jun 13, 2022 Insights On REACH, RoHS & TSCA From Assent Evolve Conference 2022

Compliance & Risks was pleased to participate in Assent Evolve, a conference dedicated to helping complex manufacturers realize deep sustainability across their supply chains – from Product Compliance to ESG.

Stacey Bowers, Manager of C&R’s Global Market Access Team, presented with Cally Edgren, Assent’s Director of Sustainability, on “Forecasts of REACH, RoHS, TSCA & More.”

PFAS Proposals:

During her presentation, Stacey covered the breadth of PFAS legislation under consideration globally, such as on the US federal level; in the US states of California, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Vermont; and at the EU regional level.

Many of these proposals would require registration of intentionally-added perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in products and product components and define:

  • “PFAS” as a class of fluorinated organic chemicals containing at least one fully fluorinated carbon atom;
  • “Product” as an item, including its components, that is manufactured, assembled, packaged or otherwise prepared for sale or distributed, including for personal, residential, commercial or industrial use, or for use in making other products and
  • “Intentionally added,” meaning that a manufacturer has intentionally added to a product, a product’s components or a product’s ingredients and that have a functional or technical effect on the product, the product’s components or the product’s ingredients.
