The European Commission is committed to stepping up regulatory action on endocrine disruptors, aiming to establish a consistent approach to regulation across all relevant European Union legislation. Particular attention will focus on areas where current legislation does not incorporate specific provisions, such as in the regulation of toys, cosmetics and food contact materials.
In determining whether a chemical has endocrine disrupting properties, a different approach is required from the usual toxicological evaluation of end-points. The mode of action must also be assessed to understand adverse effects of endocrine disruptors on human health and environment.
This introductory video, produced by CHCS, explains the various components of the human endocrine system and how they interact, to help understand the mechanisms of endocrine disruptors on human systems.
The video is just over 10 minutes long and is available to all CHCS members, free of charge.
