Expert report: How are endocrine disrupting properties of non-active substances currently assessed – and what are the challenges?
Application note: Chemical Watch 24 February 2022
Triskelion’s experts Yuzhu (Celia) Wei and Ingrid Sterenborg discuss the present practice of assessing endocrine disrupting properties of co-formulants and suggest possible improvements.
There’s increasing regulatory focus on endocrine disruptors (EDs). In 2018, the EU agreed on scientific criteria for the evaluation of EDs for the Plant Protection Products Regulation (PPPR) and the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). Information requirements for EDs are also being developed for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and a draft proposal is expected in 2022.
Most of the regulators’ and scientists’ attention has been on active substances in biocidal or plant protection products. But how can non-active substances used in these products be evaluated?
