We are inviting feedback on proposed scheduling decisions for managing chemicals that pose a high risk to the environment, including chemicals that have been widely used in firefighting foams.
Consultation on proposed standards to manage three groups of per and poly fluoroalkyl (PFAS) chemicals - PFOA, PFOS and PFHxS - and pentachlorobenzene (PeCB) is open from 21 July 2023.
Feedback will help Australian governments and businesses to better manage the environmental risks of these chemicals.
To find out more, visit the Industrial Chemicals Environmental Management Standard webpage. Submissions close on 1 September 2023.
