Page last updated: 02 July 2019

The Australian Government provided free blood testing for Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) for people who live or work, or who have lived or worked, in the RAAF Base Williamtown, NSW, Army Aviation Centre Oakey, Qld, or RAAF Base Tindal, NT Investigation Areas and who had potentially been exposed to PFAS.

Where individual consent was given, the PFAS blood test results from these areas may be used as part of an epidemiological study to improve the understanding of the potential health effects relating to PFAS exposure. Please refer to the PFAS – An Epidemiological Study webpage for more information.

The ending of the Voluntary Blood Testing Program was aligned with the next stage of the epidemiological study.

The Voluntary Blood Testing Program has now closed.
