PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-000697-17 The Commission's legal proposal on endocrine disruptors. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-000861-17 Scientific criteria for endocrine-disrupting properties — modification of derogation in the basic act — reference to EFSA. In June 2016, the Commission adopted a draft proposal on scientific criteria for the determination of endocrine-disrupting properties.
As part of this, the Commission also proposed to change a derogation laid down in the basic act on pesticides. The Legal Service of the European Parliament clearly considers that the Commission would exceed its mandate with this proposal. There is another major problem with the Commission’s proposal. One key reason used by the Commission to justify the modification of the derogation from ‘negligible exposure’ to ‘negligible risk’ is an opinion by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) of February 2013, according to which endocrine disruptors may be assessed like most other substances of concern via a risk assessment. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-000039-17 Endocrine-disrupting chemicals containing components that are used in pest control under CETA. Unlike the European Union, Canada applies a risk-based approach, instead of a precautionary approach.
The Canadian approach appears to be less cautious with regard to human health and the environment and is not consistent with the high level of protection demanded by the approach of precautionary and preventive actions, as described in Article 191 of TFEU. Canada has repeatedly criticised the approach relating to the EU’s plans to protect people and the environment against endocrine-disrupting chemicals by stating that this approach ‘would unduly impede trade’. CETA encourages regulatory cooperation and the recognition of equivalent measures in the field of pest control management. Article 5.6.1 of CETA provides that the EU shall approve SPS measures which are equivalent to its own, provided that they ensure an ‘appropriate level’ of protection. At the same time, however, the terms and conditions for this ‘will be negotiated at a later stage’.

The important task of identifying and phasing out endocrine disrupting substances need to get started. The Commission must now adopt a delegated act with criteria in order to comply with the judgement, said the Swedish minister for Climate and the Environment Åsa Romson. Sweden initiated proceedings against the Commission in July 2014 for failure to adopt a delegated act with scientific criteria for identifying endocrine disrupting substances within the deadline set out in the Biocides Regulation. According to the Regulation the Commission should adopt the delegated act no later than 13 December 2013. The Commission has the necessary supporting data to adopt the delegated act. The judgement of this case concerns the obligation on the Commission to adopt a delegated act in accordance with the Biocides Regulation.

Growing worries that endocrine disruptors can damage your health will be raised in MEPs’ questions to health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis on Monday at 19.00.
Scientists link these chemicals, present in many everyday products, to a rise in foetal and genital abnormalities, cancer and infertility. MEPs will ask the Commission to explain delays in delivering criteria for identifying and categorizing these chemicals, which they say it had a legal duty to do by December 2013. In a resolution voted in March 2013, MEPs urged the EU to act to reduce exposure to these chemicals, which scientists link to a recent rise in cases of impaired sperm quality, early onset of puberty, certain cancers and other disorders. The Council of Ministers decided last month to back Sweden in taking the European Commission to the Court of Justice for failure to act over the chemicals, found in products ranging from pesticides to toys, medical devices and cosmetics.

BFR 21/03/13 Appeal for harmonized scientific criteria for identification and assessment of endocrine disruptors.
The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment and the British Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) suggest a concept for human health risk assessment of endocrine disruptors Endocrine active substances denote substances that can influence the hormonal system of organisms. If this interaction leads to adverse effects, for example health impairments, such substances are called endocrine disruptors. In the European Union, specific regulations have now been passed on endocrine disruptors in different legal areas. However, the scientific basis on which such substances are to be identified and characterized has not been defined yet. For this reason, the European Commission has been asked by the European legislator to present concrete and transparent criteria for the determination of endocrine-disrupting properties of substances. For the purpose of identification, all toxicological studies and other scientific information available for a given substance should be considered.
