Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Potential Future Designations of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) as CERCLA Hazardous Substances
EPA is issuing an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) asking the public for input regarding potential future designations of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).
This request for input and information follows EPA’s September 2022 proposed Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) designating PFOA and PFOS as CERCLA hazardous substances. EPA is currently reviewing comments received on the proposed rule.
The ANPRM is not a regulatory action.
EPA is asking for public comment on the proposal for 60 days -- comments must be received on or before June 12, 2023 -- at docket EPA-HQ-OLEM-2022-0922 on www.regulations.gov.
