Urge Parliament to Prioritize EDC Regulation

EU Flag
The European Commission has launched initial steps towards developing a comprehensive strategy on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) but additional pressure is needed to ensure that it follows through on this important effort. We have an opportunity to raise the profile of EDCs and ensure that the Parliament prioritizes this issue throughout their 5-year term from 2019-2024.
