ECOS Updates State PFAS Standards White Paper

ECOS has published its annual update of its White Paper entitled, “Processes and Considerations for Setting State PFAS Standards.” The paper focuses on regulatory, legislative, and scientific processes and considerations for setting state PFAS standards. The paper was originally published in 2020 to help federal, state, and international authorities avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts, as well as to understand and communicate about differences in guidelines.  This April 2024 update adds information from three more states and adds two new subsections (on other regulatory developments and how states develop fish and wildlife consumption advisories), as well as new regulatory and scientific activities that have occurred over the past year. These include updated guidance across the states, information on the MCLs and CERCLA, and updates from states about how those federal rules will be implemented. Read the updated paper on setting state PFAS standards here.
