November 16, 2021

Submitted to regulations.gov Docket EPA-HQ-OA-2021-0403-0001 - Draft Fiscal Year 2022-2026 Strategic Plan for the Environmental Protection Agency

November 12, 2021

"The Endocrine Society appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-2026 Draft Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Strategic Plan. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. The Endocrine Society’s membership consists of over 18,000 scientists, physicians, educators, nurses, and students in more than 100 countries. Society members represent all basic, applied and clinical interests in endocrinology. Included among our members are the world’s leading experts on the health effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

We enthusiastically support the goals of the strategic plan and welcome EPA’s commitment to action on critical issues such as climate change and environmental justice. We also welcome EPA’s strategic approach to ensuring that children and other vulnerable populations are accounted for to ensure the health and wellbeing of individuals in all communities across the lifespan. Decades of scientific evidence has confirmed that proper identification, assessment, and regulation of EDCs throughout our environment will be essential to these and other objectives described in the strategic plan. In our comments, we offer several recommendations for improving the strategic plan to better accomplish the ambitions goals described therein."
