PFAS Compliance and Litigation Risks are Rapidly Escalating – The Time to Prepare is NOW.

Companies at every level of the stream of commerce now face exposure to PFAS enforcement action and litigation, with threats now reaching beyond the chemical manufacturers to downstream manufacturers, importers, distributers and retailers of PFAS-containing products. With new regulations from the EPA on the horizon, and the patchwork of inconsistent state PFAS laws continuing to grow, it is critical that companies have a 360-degree understanding of the current legislative, regulatory, enforcement and litigation landscape.

As we enter 2024, failing to understand the full scope of PFAS risks to your organization will expose you to damaging business disruptions, substantial penalties for non-compliance, costly litigation and environmental liabilities, broken supply chains, reputational/brand damage, lost market share and more.

Attend ACI’s Premiere Summit on PFAS Regulation, Compliance and Litigation to gain an in-depth analysis of the most critical regulatory and litigation developments having cross-industry implications. Attend and walk away with an understanding of where the PFAS-related risks exist within your business, and how to most efficiently tackle and mitigate those risks.
