EPA PFAS FOCUS BY INDUSTRY

Home / PFAS Regulations / EPA Focus by Industry

In its 2021-2024 Strategic Plan, the U.S. EPA singled out a number of industries for increased attention in the agency’s efforts to control and remediate PFAS.

TOP INDUSTRIES FOR PFAS RULEMAKING

At the top of the EPA’s priorities is proposed rulemaking for industries in which it has the data to do so.

REQUEST AN INDUSTRY BRIEFING

Risk assessment and mitigation starts with information. Pace® PFAS experts can brief your organization on:
  • What the EPA’s Strategic Plan means for your industry
  • Important elements of a PFAS response strategy
  • Testing and sampling cost details to help with budgeting

INDUSTRIES TARGETED FOR MORE STUDY

The EPA has PFAS data on several more industries but has deemed those data sets insufficient for rulemaking.
The 2021-2024 Strategic Plan calls for filling in the gaps by fall of 2022 with proposed rulemaking to follow by the end of the year.

INDUSTRIES TARGETED FOR PFAS DATA REVIEW

Some industries are known users of PFAS, but the impact of PFAS discharge on the environment from these industries is not well understood.
The EPA plans to review the available data for these industries by winter of 2023 and decide whether sufficient data exists to initiate rulemaking.
