Methodology for EU EDC screening

Impact assessment on criteria to identify endocrine disruptors – technical meeting on the Joint Research Center methodology

European Commission Joint Research Center presents chemical screening methodology for the impact assessment on criteria to identify endocrine disruptors

A technical meeting on the JRC methodology for evidence screening of chemicals developed in the context of the Impact Assessment on criteria to identify Endocrine Disruptors took place on 6 November 2015 in Brussels.

The aim of this technical meeting was to present to Member States, Members of the European Parliament, countries from outside the EU and stakeholders the methodology developed by the JRC to estimate which chemicals may fall under the different options for criteria to identify endocrine disruptors as outlined in the roadmap. This methodology was developed in the framework of the impact assessment carried out by the European Commission on criteria to identify endocrine disruptors, in the context of the Plant Protection Products Regulation (EC) 1107/2009 and the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) 528/2012.
