Reason for restriction -similar concern as with PFOA -no natural sources and ubiquitous distribution in the environment -degradation of precursor compounds to C9-C14 PFCAs -detection in consumer products -emissions from multiple uses at each stage of the life cycle (production, processing, use of articles, disposal) -partially increasing concentrations in the environment and in humanserum -alternatives are available -C9-C20 precursor substances have already been included in the PFOA-POP proposal of the EU Commission -authorisation not appropriate RMM (import problem)
