|Title:||EU regulation of endocrine disruptors: a missed opportunity|
|Citation:||The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, 4(8): pp.649–650, (2016)|
|Abstract:||The European Commission (EC) has missed a unique opportunity to develop a regulatory system that sets new standards in the protection against endocrine-disrupting chemicals. The proposed amendments to the European Union (EU) pesticide law and the criteria for the identification of endocrine disruptors that the EC published on June 15, 2016, after a delay of almost 3 years,1 ensure that hardly any endocrine disruptors used as pesticides will be barred from commerce.|
