Fluorinated Ski Wax
IFSS Council has decided to follow the recommendations from FIS International Ski Federation when it comes to a ban of fluorinated ski waxes. Fluorinated ski waxes have been shown scientifically to have a negative environmental and health impact. IFSS Council will follow the development in FIS and take further decisions accordingly.
The following decision made by FIS prohibits the use of any products containing C8 fluorocarbons/PFOA. More information: https://www.fis-ski.com/en/international-ski-federation/news-multimedia/news/update-on-fis-fluorinated-ski-wax-ban IFSS Council encourages all Member federations to spread the word to their clubs and athletes to discourage the use of fluorine waxes.
