Europe: proposal on endocrine disrupting chemicals

The European Commission is proposing that endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) be classified under CLP (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labeling and Packaging of substances and mixtures) as either ‘category 1: known or presumed’ or ‘category 2: suspected’ in a move likely to stoke further intense debate among stakeholders about the right approach to these substances.

The draft proposal, which was discussed with member states at the latest meeting of the competent authorities sub-group on endocrine disruption (CASG-ED) on 22 March, is a major step in changing CLP to account for EDCs, as required by the chemicals strategy. Source: Chemical Watch
