September 18, 2023 MINNESOTA ANNOUNCES PFAS RULEMAKING By Claire Williams and Andrew Davis Minnesota has begun enacting substantive rules and standards for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). In May, Minnesota enacted a PFAS statute that defines PFAS, creates a reporting requirement, and bans sale or distribution of certain products containing PFAS within the state, a change that will have an impact beyond the state’s borders. On September 14, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) announced its intention to develop PFAS rules to implement the statutory reporting requirement, which becomes effective January 1, 2025. PFAS refers to a family of nearly 15,000 man-made, environmentally persistent chemicals (often referred to as forever chemicals) with a chain of carbon-fluorine bonds. They are used in a wide variety of consumer and industrial products such as nonstick cookware, waterproof clothing, cosmetics and, historically, in firefighting foam and airport defoaming agents.
