New Comprehensive Global Database of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) listing 4730 new PFAS

The OECD released a New Comprehensive Global Database of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) listing 4730 new PFAS, including several new groups of PFASs that fulfil the common definition of PFASs (i.e. they contain at least one perfluoroalkyl moiety) but have not yet been commonly regarded as PFASs.

The list can be used in conjunction with the methodology report summarising the major findings with respect to the total numbers and types of PFASs identified, the limitations, gaps and challenges identified, and opportunities for improving the future understanding of PFASs production, use on the global market, and presence in the environment, biota, and other matrices.
