Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC), 2017

The ITRC has released three technical PFAS fact sheets: (1) History and Use (8 pages); (2) Regulations, Guidance, and Advisories (6 pages plus 2 Excel files); and (3) Naming Conventions and Physical and Chemical Properties (15 pages). The PFAS Technical Team has developed easily understood information about the whole spectrum of PFAS issues. The fact sheets also provide an extensive reference list if readers want additional details. The fact sheets are living documents and will be updated as more technical and regulatory information becomes available. Publication of three additional fact sheets is anticipated in December 2017. The PFAS team is also working on an in-depth guidance document to provide a greater understanding of the technical and regulatory aspects of PFAS as well as a fact sheet focused on aqueous film-forming foams (AFFF). The fact sheets are currently being translated into Spanish. http://pfas-1.itrcweb.org/fact-sheets/
