US EPA drafts endocrine screening list

The US EPA has drawn up the first draft list of pesticide active and inert ingredients to undergo screening for potential effects on the endocrine system. The list of 73 chemicals includes 64 ais and nine inerts. The candidates for screening were chosen because of their high potential for exposure to people or the environment rather than possible endocrine effects, the EPA points out. "This list should not be construed as a list of known or likely endocrine disruptors," the Agency stresses. The draft list has been issued for public comment and it is expected to be finalised in early 2008.
