Singapore Takes Decisive Steps to Eliminate Fire-fighting Foams Containing PFAS

Starting from January 1, 2026, Singapore will phase out the import and use of firefighting foams containing PFOA and PFOS, including their salts and related compounds. After January 1, 2026, companies can continue using fire-fighting foams containing PFAS if trace contaminant concentrations are below their respective threshold limits, and disposal must be done through licensed Toxic Industrial Waste Collectors by the NEA.

Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA) issued a circular on March 15, 2024, announcing its decisive steps to eliminate the use of fire-fighting foams that contain PFAS chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention. Industry stakeholders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the upcoming eliminations of such fire-fighting foams and take the necessary actions to ensure compliance.
