Working Group Fundamental Rights on PFOS Contamination: “Earth Resistance Commission Report Gives Too Few Guarantees”

Meanwhile, the Fundamental Rights Working Group analyzed the report with independent experts. “We maintain our position that this report does not provide sufficient guarantees of public health for local residents and workers,” says Eva Frooninckx from Grondrecht.

She deplored that the report still does not provide answers to the population to the questions that have already been asked. “We find it irresponsible, for example, that the framework for standardization remains unquestioned. The same applies to the principle of packaging. There is no scientific evidence that this method of work is safe and healthy. Expect guarantees about this, these have been available So far. It’s still not available,” Frooninckx said.

In addition, the report also raises many new questions. “We have questions for each paragraph of the report. For example, how are dust measurements made and can it be ensured that gusts of wind do not harm workers and local residents? Or what is meant by the proximity of the residential and recreation area? Can this be made tangible? For Grundrecht, the report is very vague and non-binding.

On Friday, Fundamental Rights sent a list of questions to all parliamentarians and Karl Franken. “Only after all of these questions are answered can it be decided whether the Oosterweel business is safe for people and the environment,” the local working group said.
