The need to gather scientific data

It is important to enhance understanding on available alternatives and to widen the debate regarding the replacement of certain fluorinated compounds, where possible, by non-fluorinated alternatives and different technologies.

As a number of countries are phasing out long-chain PFASs, alternatives to these chemicals are being sought. Efforts to assess and understand the exposure and associated risk to the environment and human health from many fluorinated alternatives to long-chain PFASs, starting from source identification and quantification, are also needed.
