PFAS Response Team
Suppliers and End users from across BioPhorum prepared a two-part industry response to the European Chemicals Agency proposal to ban the use of so-called forever chemicals (PFAS) during the public consultation period. These chemicals are widely used across the biopharma value chain and the ban will have a significant and wide-reaching impact if approved.
The biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry has not been considered in the drafting of these proposed new regulations
The agency has a limited understanding of the impact on our industry as a regulated industry or the implications that the proposed changes will have on the availability of biotherapeutics for patients – we needed to develop a one-voice-of-the-industry approach to help explain to the agencies because this was deemed (by them) to be more impactful than individual company submissions to the public consultation process.
Inform and educate the regulatory agency
The response team submitted a response and made an in person delegation to present to the agency – positively received and our voice was heard.
