Evaluation of the endocrine-disrupting potential of a plant protection product
The Plant Protection Products Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 is amended by Regulation (EU) 2018/605, requiring that information on the potential endocrine-disrupting properties of such products must be collated and evaluated. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have published “Guidance for the identification of endocrine disruptors in the context of Regulations (EU) No 528/2012 and (EC) No 1107/2009”, detailing the performance of such hazard identification, together with an Excel spreadsheet to be used as a template for gathering the necessary information on “human and animal health” and “non-target organisms”.
