Chemical Currents – January 25, 2022

Chemical Currents provides real-time updates, legal observations, and actionable tips to navigate the constantly evolving legal challenges involving PFAS.  In this edition, we discuss EPA’s submission of a proposed rule designating PFOA and PFOS as CERCLA “Hazardous Substances” to the Office of Management and Budget, two interesting federal cases (one at the beginning of its litigation lifetime and one apparently at its end), a newly published scientific review regarding approaches to PFAS risk assessment, a recently published study flagging PFAS analytical methods that can result in false positive results, and a new consumer product. 

We also encourage our readers to join upcoming webinars hosted by our team at King & Spalding, including a two-part series on PFAS, and two other webinars relating to legal issues in the food and beverage industry, as well as environmental justice. 

Look for new editions every two weeks and reach out if you have any questions or topic suggestions.
