Endocrine disruptors: ‘Better Regulation’ or better public health?

CHEM Trust, together with Health and Environment Alliance, have just published a comment piece in Euractiv:

“Endocrine disruptors pose a substantial risk to public health, yet the European Commission has dawdled time and again on introducing measures that would finally limit their use. Now is the time to put this right, write Genon Jensen and Michael Warhurst.” text continues on Euractiv site

We, along with over 60 other environmental and health groups, have also sent a letter to EU Environment Ministers prior to their discussions on hormone (endocrine) disrupting chemicals on Friday 4th March, calling for them to:

“make a strong statement calling on the European Commission to immediately comply with the ruling of the European Court of Justice on scientific criteria to identify Endocrine Disruptors”

For more information on CHEM Trust’s analysis of how such criteria for identifying hormone disrupters should be defined, see our blog post on the EU consultation on criteria for Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals.
