The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is planning new rules governing fees associated with required reporting of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in products. The main purpose of this rulemaking is to establish fees to be paid upon submission of required reporting information about products containing intentionally added PFAS as provided for in Minnesota Session Law - 2023, Chapter 60, H.F. No. 2310.
The notice of Request for Comments on this rulemaking was published in the September 25, 2023, State Register.
Procedural rulemaking documents
The PFAS in products fee is part of a package of PFAS in products requirements in Minnesota Session Law – 2023, Chapter 60, including PFAS in products reporting. The law directs that if the MPCA opts to establish fees to cover the costs of implementing a PFAS in products reporting program, it must do so in rule.
This rulemaking proposes to establish a fee structure to be charged to manufacturers that report intentionally added PFAS in products sold, offered for sale, or distributed in Minnesota. Fees to be paid upon submission of required information to the MPCA about products containing intentionally added PFAS are to cover the MPCA’s cost to implement the reporting program. The fee structure may be based on the products reported, the number of PFAS reported, and/or the amounts of PFAS reported.
