UK/German regulators propose endocrine disruptor definition

Regulators from the UK and Germany have developed a definition to identify endocrine disruptors (EDs) of very high concern. The joint effort was prompted by the introduction of a cut-off criterion in the new EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009), which stipulates that any active substance, safener or synergist with endocrine disrupting properties that may cause adverse effects in humans cannot be approved for marketing and use unless the exposure of humans under realistic proposed conditions of use is negligible. The lack of acceptable and specific criteria defining EDs has caused much consternation among the industry ( Agrow passim).
