PFASs can be found in the environment and humans across Europe, whereby areas around industrial production, manufacturing and application sites have been found to be particularly contaminated. This has led to contaminated drinking water around PFASs manufacturing factories in Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands, and around airports and military bases with fire-fighting training sites in Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom.
Against this background policy makers of different European countries joined forces and work towards a broad restriction for PFAS substances. Appropriate analytical methods need to be available for the enforcement and monitorability of a restriction. The present report summarised available analytical methods for several specific uses and draw conclusions for monitoring compliance measurements.
