The European Commission published on 17 May the interim report: “Summary of the State of the Science on Endocrine Disrupters, Part 1”.

Committed to support the health and environmental safety of chemical substances,with regard to endocrine related effects, the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) acknowledges this activity as a contribution to the ongoing discussion.

In the past years, CEFIC (in collaboration with academia) has been supportive of the work of the European Commission, OECD and Member States to develop a framework for systematically identifying substances with endocrine properties of concern. To this end, as this interim report is designated as “work in progress”,  CEFIC will continue to contribute with its expertise and proposals to the development of an adequate approach to this issue.
