    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a diverse group of man-made compounds resistant to heat, water, and oil, and are used in all sorts of industrial and consumer products such as carpeting, apparel, upholstery, food wrapping papers, fire-fighting foams, and metal plating. PFAS also are persistent, resist degradation, and have been found at very low levels both in the environment and in the blood samples of the general U.S. population. There is concern that at higher levels PFAS can cause health issues, so they have recently become subject to stricter regulation and liability issues.

    Join our program for a discussion of PFAS covering:
      • What recent science says about them
      • Which ones are the focus of regulators including recent changes in drinking and ground water standards
      • Recent cases that set precedent as to the potential risks of PFAS' liability
      • Pending legislation that will affect manufacturers and PFAS regulation and liability
