LUXEMBOURG--()--Second paragraph, second sentence of release should read: "which includes the initial EPA PFAS" (instead of "which includes the initial EPA FAS").

The updated release reads:

Eurofins Eaton Analytical Granted Provisional Approval for UCMR5 Testing

Eurofins Eaton Analytical is prepared for UCMR5 testing in advance of anticipated rule release.

UCMR5 testing requires the monitoring of 30 contaminants including 29 PFAS compounds and Lithium. Eurofins Eaton Analytical has been analyzing PFAS for over 20 years, which includes the initial EPA PFAS data collection and analysis. In order to achieve this provisional approval, Eurofins Eaton Analytical has validated all three UCMR5 methods (537.1, 533 and 200.7), passed the EPA rigorous approval process, and successfully completed two rounds of proficiency testing.

As the leading potable water laboratory in the US, Eurofins Eaton Analytical has been an EPA independent contractor for UCMR1 – UCMR4, providing method validation and supporting small systems.
