Public consultation on criteria for endocrine disruptors initiated

The European Commission started a public consultation on the criteria for identifying endocrine disruptors (ED) on 26th September 2014 (deadline: 16 January 2015). This is part of the impact assessment process in the context of the implementation of the plant protection product regulation and the biocidal products regulation. For further information see here. While the Commission is discussing the criteria for identifying ED and their possible regulatory consequences the criteria proposed by the Endocrine Disruptors Expert Advisory Group (JRC, 2013) were already applied to DEHP and other phthalates by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency  to propose an Annex XIV entry. Do you have any further questions on endocrine disruptors in the REACH context?
