Perfluorinated Chemicals (PFCs) and the transition to safer alternatives

Efforts on this emerging policy issue are focused on gathering and exchanging information on perfluorinated chemicals and to support the transition to safer alternatives. This work has been coordinated by the Global Perfluorinated Chemicals Group, which is supported by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and UNEP. ICCM3 provided a mandate to further broaden participation in this work beyond the member countries of the OECD and recognized the Global PFC Group as an important mechanism to achieve further progress in this area. 

A web-portal has been developed for information exchange purposes and is one of the OECD's contributions to implement the Strategic Approach in this area.
