EFSA to present work on EDs

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is to discuss its latest work on identifying endocrine disruptors (EDs) at a meeting with scientific and regulatory experts on March 20th in Brussels, Belgium. The information will accompany the EFSA’s report on EDs, which is due in March ( Agrow No 650, p 8). The report covers scientific criteria for identifying EDs and looks at the suitability of existing testing methods for assessing endocrine effects. The meeting aims to clarify various aspects such as terminology, availability of test methods, limitations and research needs. Under the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009), the European Commission must propose specific criteria for EDs by the end of 2013.
