Legislation text

At its ninth meeting held from 29 April to 10 May 2019, the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention decided to include the substance perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), its salts and PFOA-related compounds in Annex A to that Convention with a number of exemptions and with an obligation for parties to prohibit the export of firefighting foams that contain those chemicals. Consequently, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), its salts and PFOA-related compounds were listed in Part A of Annex I to Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 and should therefore be added to the list of chemicals in Part 1 of Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 as regards its presence in fire-fighting foams.
