Endocrine Disrupters – Developing criteria

image of Endocrine Disrupters – Developing criteria

During the 2010 Danish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers environment and health was a prioritized subject. The aim was enhanced Nordic information exchange. To support this aim a number of Nordic workshops were held to strengthen the capacity building and discuss future regulatory aspects in the area of endocrine disruptors, combination effects, and soft regulatory measures and effective risk communication. One of the workshops held in November focused on developing criteria for endocrine disruptors. This report describes the workshop presentations, the ensuing discussions, and the outcome.



Report from workshop sessions 3 and 4: How to set up criteria

The human health group agreed that it was important that criteria for ED should be focussed on hazards and not on risks (potency and exposure) and noted that care should be taken not to restrict the criteria to only rely on currently available endpoints but that new available endpoints should be evaluated for relevance to endocrine disruption on a continuous basis.
