Short description: ITRC has released its first three technical PFAS fact sheets: 1. History and Use 2. Regulations, Guidance, and Advisories 3. Naming Conventions and Physical and Chemical Properties The fact sheets provide information about the whole spectrum of PFAS issues and an extensive reference list. The fact sheets are living documents and will be updated as more technical and regulatory information becomes available. The last three fact sheets will be out in December 2017. The team is also working on an in-depth guidance document which will provide a greater understanding of the technical and regulatory aspects of PFAS, as well as another fact sheet focused on aqueous film-forming foams (AFFF).
