As PFAS are highly leachable and bioaccumulative, it will not be sufficient to just measure soil and groundwater samples. Leachate and biota concentrations also need to be measured.

- sampling methods to be undertaken to assess whether PFAs are present
- what checks to conduct if PFAS are present on the site
- further investigations to undertake if PFAS are present
