Endocrine disruptors have recently been the focus of strong regulatory action in the European Union (EU) due the impact of these substances on human health and the environment; in particular specific provisions on how to evaluate and assess endocrine disruptors were recently included in the legislation on pesticides and biocides. New guidance documents have been released to support authorities and industries in identifying substances with endocrine disrupting properties.
