PFOA - Amendment of Annex I POPs published

The new Delegated Regulation (EU) 2023/866 amending Annex I of the POP regulation is published in the official journal.
The modification is related to the PFOA (perfluoroctanoic acid) entry with the aim to reduce the concentration of PFOA to a level below the generic UTC limit of 0,025 mg/kg set out in Regulation (EU) 2019/1021. The current specific UTC limit for PFOA and its salts in PTFE micropowders of 1 mg/kg is no longer needed and should expire at the date of application of this Regulation (18 August 2023).
