PFAS….the Forever Chemicals…..the scientific community has learned so much about these substances over the years including how to test for them, the optimal sampling requirements, best practices and much more. In this presentation, SGS Canada will discuss the current science on the sampling and measurement of the ever-changing world of per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).


At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:

                        • An awareness of the current state of regulatory methods
                        • What new techniques are being used in PFAS analysis
                        • Sampling Do’s and Don’ts
                        • A look ahead at passive sampling for PFAS

  • Facilitator:
