The EU have launched the Endocrine Disruptors Fitness Check, encouraging small and medium sized businesses for their views on its delivery.


The Fitness Check aims to analyse the different regulatory approaches to the assessment and management of endocrine disruptors and to assess whether the legislation delivers on its objectives, which is to protect human health and the environment.


The outcome of the Fitness Check will inform potential improvements of the regulatory framework with regard to endocrine disruptors.


Endocrine Disruptors (EDs) are chemical substances that interfere with hormones (endocrine system) and in so doing negatively affect the health of humans and animals. They may either be synthetic or of natural origin. Exposure to endocrine disruptors can occur from different sources, such as from residues of pesticides in our food or from other types of products used or present in our daily life.
