Endocrine Disruptors and EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability Letter

September 21, 2020

To: Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice President, European Commission

"The members of our societies include many of the world’s leading experts on the health effects of EDCs and the treatment of patients with endocrine diseases, and we have held meetings with EU policymakers to share the state of the scientific evidence linking EDCs to public health harms. There is a strong international scientific consensus that EDCs contribute to serious health problems such as diabetes, obesity, adverse pregnancy outcomes, neurodevelopmental and reproductive disorders, and compromised newborn and children’s health12. We therefore welcome the Commission’s commitment in the European Green Deal to take action to protect public health and the environment against hazardous chemicals, including EDCs, via the EU chemicals strategy and we support the clear emphasis on scientific evidence to inform a health protective regulatory framework."
