About the workshop:
It’s common knowledge that per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been utilised in various industries and consumer products since the 1940s due to their practical properties. These manufactured chemicals can be found in a plethora of environmental matrices such as soils, waters, plants, food, and even everyday domestic items and air. However, their persistence and potential risks to both environmental and human health cannot be ignored.
The Australian regulatory jurisdictions have developed guidelines to address these concerns. In 2020, the PFAS National Environmental Management Plan (NEMP) was launched in two parts (NEMP 1 and NEMP 2), and in November 2022, NEMP 3 was launched, providing a comprehensive approach to managing the risks associated with PFAS.
Recently, the draft third version of the PFAS National Environmental Management Plan (PFAS NEMP 3.0) was published for consultation. Developed by the National Chemicals Working Group under the Heads of EPAs Australia and New Zealand (HEPA), this new version builds on the previous version, providing additional guidance and standards to manage PFAS effectively. It’s an important step towards a safer and healthier environment for all.
The workshop will offer invaluable networking opportunities for practitioners, regulators, and researchers. Delegates will get the opportunity to build connections with instructors as well as with their fellow delegates.
This course can be used towards continuing professional development (CPD) points. Please check with your certification scheme regarding CPD points.
