On November 7, the European Commission adopted on a Communication, confirming its commitment to protecting citizens and the environment from hazardous chemicals. The Communication also outlines how the Commission intends to ensure that the EU approach remains the most modern and fit-for-purpose in the world.
The Communication delivers on the commitment taken by the Commission last year, when working with Member States on the criteria to identify endocrine disruptors (EDs) in the areas of pesticides and biocides. It addresses the concerns of the European Parliament and the Council and follows up from the 7th Environment Action Programme.
Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu Vella said: This Communication confirms that the Commission takes endocrine disruptors very seriously and intends to strengthen its efforts to minimise citizens and environment exposure to these chemicals.
