The OECD conducted surveys in 2004 and 2006 on Perfluorooctane sulfonate(PFOS), Perfluoroalkyl sulfonate (PFAS), Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), related substances and products/mixtures containing these substances. The 2006 survey also included Perfluorocarboxylic Acid (PFCA) and PFCA precursors. The information sought included chemical identities, volumes of manufacture and import, use patterns of these chemicals, availability of

This Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information to be used for risk assessment for active substances and products used as biocidal (i.e. non agricultural) insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods (in the EU, product type 18 [PT18] ). Biocidal products marketed as insecticides are used in many different applications. They may be used indoors (within buildings), outdoors (around
