The main objective of WP3-Policy is to stimulate and support policy changes to more effectively tackle persistent and mobile substances.

This will be achieved through the following sub-objectives:

To describe relevant European and international policy objectives and actions as well as identify needs, and challenges for realising them.

To analyse opportunities and gaps in the existing policy framework for preventing persistent and mobile substances from entering the environment.

To develop policy actions tailored to groups of persistent and mobile substances, uses or sectors and assess their impacts on different actors and sectors as well as their feasibility of facilitating a transition towards zero pollution from persistent and mobile substances (with WP4 Market transition)

To design roadmaps for groups of persistent and mobile substances, uses or sectors as well as to formulate and disseminate concise policy messages by engaging with all relevant stakeholders throughout the implementation of the project for formulating and disseminating.

WP3 Policy is hosting the “Regulatory Watch“, which will post about upcoming EU Initiatives that will have an impact on the regulation of persistent and mobile substances, to alert ZeroPM members and the general public about these Initiatives and opportunities for commenting. This can be accessed here.


WP3 is lead by Lise Oulès, who along with her colleagues at at Milieu Consulting SRL, will use their extensive experience in assisting European policy makers and stakeholders with various aspects of the EU Green Deal to achieve the objectives above towards the prevention of PFAS and persistent, mobile substances. Collaborating in this work package is the German Environment Agency (UBA), who were the first to design and develop guideline documents for PMT/vPvM substances for policy action within Europe.
