Evaluation of endocrine disrupting properties of a CoRAP listed substance
The Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP) under REACH lists substances for which there is an initial concern that their manufacture or use could pose risk to human health or the environment. The substance evaluation process under REACH aims to clarify these potential risks. The objective of this project was to conduct a weight of evidence review of potential endocrine disrupting properties.
Chemical factsheets to inform business risks of potential endocrine disrupters
The objective of the project was to prepare concise factsheets for a list of chemicals that had been implicated as endocrine active or endocrine disrupting chemicals. The purpose of these factsheets was for concise internal company communication on the potential business risk of the continued use of these chemicals in their products and to enable the client to proactively manage these potential risks.
Weight of evidence reviews for endocrine disrupting properties of plant protection product active substances
The European legislation on plant protection products (Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009) sets out strict criteria for approval of active substances and includes the assessment of endocrine disrupting properties. Active substances that are endocrine disruptors will not be approved under the regulation unless there is negligible exposure to humans and non-target species.
