FPA Signs Coalition Extension Request for the State of Maine’s Deadline for Reporting Products Containing Intentionally Added Substances Defined as PFAS

We are writing to respectfully request an extension of the deadline for reporting of products containing intentionally added substances defined as PFAS in the State of Maine that is scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2023. As you know, 38 MRSA Section 1612 has a broad impact on nearly every sector of the economy, including aerospace, autos, alternative energy, healthcare, building and construction, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture, that relies on PFAS chemistries for the reliable and safe function of a variety of products important for industry and consumers. Under, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) may grant an extension if the DEP determines that more time is needed by manufacturers to comply with submission requirements.
