Significant progress in understanding and regulating endocrine disruptors (EDs) has been made over the past decades. Today the EU is recognised as having one of the most stringent and advanced legislations on endocrine disruptors in the world.
Said Marco Mensink, Cefic’s Director General: Cefic welcomes the proposal for a Fitness Check to make sure that our approach to dealing with endocrine disruptors is coherent, consistent and science-based. As science on endocrine disruption is still developing, investing more into research on endocrine disruption and improving testing methods for EDs is rightfully identified as one of the focus areas for the Commission. The chemical industry looks forward to contributing to the upcoming Fitness Check proposed by the European Commission”.
