Guidance on identifying endocrine disruptors published

A drafting group consisting of scientific staff from ECHA and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), with the support of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), have developed scientific guidance to enable the identification of endocrine disruptors. The guidance advises applicants and assessors of the competent regulatory authorities on how to identify endocrine disruptors in accordance with the endocrine disruptor criteria.

The guidance has been consulted with the Agencies’ stakeholders, ECHA’s endocrine disruptor expert group and Member States’ biocides and pesticides competent authorities.
