    The OECD conducted a survey in 2004 on Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS),Perfluoroalkyl Sulfonate (PFAS), Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), related substances and products/mixtures containing these substances within OECD and non-OECD member countries. The information sought were quantities manufactured or imported, concentration of the chemicals in the products or mixtures, uses, use in consumer products, availability of alternatives or substitutes and essential uses for which no substitutes are available. The 37th Joint Meeting decided that lists of these groups of chemicals with CAS numbers would be useful prior to the next OECD survey. The aim of the annexes is to provide OECD member countries and other organisations with a consolidated and updated set of lists of PFOS, PFAS, PFOA and related chemical substances that will assist in providing responses to the next OECD survey of these substances, to be carried out in 2006. The annexed lists will be updated, as appropriate, following the 2006 survey.
