Endocrine Society Letter on EDC Fitness Check Roadmap

July 09, 2019

To: Members of the Joint Research Centre Directorate on Health, Consumers and Reference Materials

"We share the concern expressed by many stakeholders that the current legal framework governing various sources of exposure to EDCs is not sufficiently coherent, and legal gaps exist that may increase exposure to harmful EDCs through multiple sources. The Endocrine Society particularly welcomes the stated aim of the Fitness Check to minimize exposure to EDCs as well as the horizontal approach to the identification of endocrine disruptors. We look forward to engaging with the Commission on the development of comprehensive regulatory strategies for cosmetics, toys, food contact materials, construction materials, textiles (including interior trim and upholsteries) and other sectors of the economy. In our comments, we share several recommendations aimed at ensuring that the Fitness Check properly assesses the existing regulatory framework based on the latest scientific knowledge of EDCs and endocrinology"
