PFAS Laws & Regulations: Business Impacts for Color Pigments Manufacturers & Importers, Converters & Processors

In November, CPMA will conduct a two-part Regulatory Webinar Series focused on current and proposed PFAS chemicals laws and regulations, with in-depth analysis describing their impacts on the color pigments value chain and its customers. The movement to establish laws and regulations restricting or banning chemicals defined as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) has progressed significantly in the European Union during the past few years. More recently, both Canadian and US governments have intensified discussions about establishing PFAS regulations using existing statutory authority. California and other state legislatures have further complicated the regulatory framework by enacting their own PFAS laws with state-based regulatory compliance and restrictions.

Economic and regulatory impacts on color pigments manufacturers/importers, processors and converters, and downstream customers, will be determined by legislative definitions and related regulatory exemptions. CPMA’s PFAS Regulatory Webinar Series will include information about current and emerging regulatory frameworks within the respective government jurisdictions.

Join us on November 1 and November 2 to learn about current and emerging PFAS regulations in North America and the EU, and potential impacts for the color pigments value chain. This webinar series is presented in partnership with Eurocolour. Register today and don’t miss these informative sessions!
