EFSA and ECHA have published an outline of the guidance they are jointly developing on how to identify substances with endocrine-disrupting properties in pesticides and biocides. The guidance will be based on the hazard-based scientific criteria currently being finalised by the European Commission. A public consultation on the draft guidance document is scheduled for the summer of 2017.
