Basic info

Status Opinion development
Details on the scope of restriction The proposal intends to restrict the manufacture, use and placing on the market of PFHxS, its salts and related substances as substances, constituents of other substances, mixtures and articles or parts thereof.
Reason for restriction PFHxS is a substance of very high concern due to its very persistent and very bioaccumulating properties. PFHxS-related substances degrade to PFHxS. The substance is found in high levels in the environment, and studies indicate increasing concentrations in the environment and in human blood serum. Norway has submitted a proposal to list PFHxS, its salts and PFHxS-related compounds in Annexes A, B and/or C to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.
