PFAS Chemical Action Plan

PFAS Chemical Action Plan Advisory Committee

The advisory committee helps the Departments of Ecology and Health develop a Chemical Action Plan (CAP) for Per- and Poly-Fluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS).

Subscribe to the CAP listserv to receive updates.

PFAS CAP comments and timeline

In May 2019, Ecology and Health asked interested parties to review the preliminary CAP recommendations and provide feedback by July 1, 2019. Those comments are in the documents section below.

We are planning to release another draft for review and comment in late summer 2020. Additional advisory committee discussion will follow the release of the draft. We will publish a final report in late 2020.

Find more information in the Interim PFAS CAP and the PFAS CAP Focus Sheet.

Learn more in our webinar materials

To learn more about our process for developing this CAP, view the presentation slides from the CAP portion or the food packaging portion and see the questions and attendees from our webinar hosted on May 15, 2019.

PFAS in Food Packaging Alternatives Assessment

In 2018, Washington state passed a law to prohibit all PFAS in plant fiber-based food packaging. As described in the Toxics in Packaging law (RCW 70.95G), the PFAS ban takes effect following the identification of safer alternative products.

The alternatives assessment (AA) must consider chemical hazard, performance, cost and availability, and exposure. Following the product evaluations, we will submit our findings for external peer review and publish the results in the Washington State Register. Find out more about this effort on the PFAS in food packaging alternatives assessment website.
