Procedural rulemaking documents
The PFAS in product reporting is part of a package of PFAS in products requirements in Minnesota Session Law – 2023, Chapter 60, including PFAS in products fees. The law directs that a manufacturer of a product sold, offered for sale, or distributed in Minnesota that contains intentionally added PFAS must submit certain required information to the MPCA.
This rulemaking proposes to establish a program to collect information about products containing intentionally added PFAS. For any intentionally added PFAS in products or product components, the information required includes reporting of a description and numeric coding of the product; the purpose of any PFAS in the product; the identity of each PFAS present; the amount of each PFAS present; location and contact information for the manufacturer; and any additional information requested by the MPCA. The MPCA must be prepared to collect this information by January 1, 2026.
