This integrated project will provide analytical solutions for the detection and quantification of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in processed and packaged foods and raw agricultural commodities. Through its global stakeholder communities and subject matter experts, we propose to identify and prioritize all PFAS that pose a food- and agriculture-related risk to consumers, and to develop method performance standards in support of fit-for-purpose Official Methods of Analysis to detect relevant PFAS in a wider range of matrices. The adoption and implementation of such compendial methods will provide the necessary confidence in human exposure data to drive the development of future public health guidance and regulatory requirements.
