Perfluorocarboxylic acids containing 9 to 14 carbon atoms in the chain (C9-C14 PFCAs), their salts and related substances. (The term "C9-C14 PFCAs" is used as an abbreviation for:
PFNA - Perfluorononan-1-oic acid (C9-PFCA) CAS 375-95-1 EC 206-801-3
PFDA - Nonadecafluorodecanoic acid (C10-PFCA) CAS 335-76-2 EC 206-400-3
PFUnDA - Henicosafluoroundecanoic acid (C11-PFCA) CAS 2058-94-8 EC 218-165-4
PFDoDA - Tricosafluorododecanoic acid (C12-PFCA) CAS 307-55-1 EC 206-203-2
PFTrDA - Pentacosafluorotridecanoic acid (C13-PFCA) CAS 72629-94-8 EC 276-745-2
PFTDA - Heptacosafluorotetradecanoic acid (C14-PFCA) CAS 376-06-7 EC 206-803-4
C9-C14 PFCA related substances can be transformed in the environment to C9-C14 PFCAs.
Draft Commission Regulation amending Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards perfluorocarboxylic acids containing 9 to 14 carbon atoms in the chain (C9-C14 PFCAs), their salts and related substances (5 page(s), in English; 4 page(s), in English)
This draft Regulation would amend Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 as follows:
A restriction is proposed on the manufacturing of C9-C14 PFCAs, their salts and related substances within the EU. Furthermore, the proposal restricts the use, placing on the market and import of C9-C14 PFCAs, their salts and related substances as substances on their own, in a mixture or in an article in a concentration equal to or above 25 ppb for the sum of C9-C14 PFCAs and their salts or 260 ppb for the sum of C9-C14 PFCA related substances.
