Beginning January 1, 2026, manufacturers of fertilizer, specialty fertilizer, soil amendment, plant amendment, or agricultural liming material must annually provide a statement that a fertilizer, specialty fertilizer, soil amendment, plant amendment, or agricultural liming material product contains no intentionally added PFAS or, for products that contain intentionally added PFAS, must submit to the commissioner the following information:
- The name and purpose for which PFAS are used in the product, including in any product components;
- The amount of each PFAS chemical, identified by its name, chemical structure, analytical methods, chemical abstracts service registry number, or other method approved by the commissioner, in the product;
- Any additional information required by the commissioner.
To provide a clear method for reporting this information, registrants, guarantors, and licensees will see new areas on their renewal forms that will allow them to report this information. For those registering individual products, a new check box will appear next to each product that will allow them to check whether each product contains intentionally added PFAS.
Extensions for submission of the required material will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the commissioner, if requested.
