Experts are slamming the proposal, which sets criteria for which chemicals get classified as EDCs. The burden of proof of harm is so high that most of these harmful chemicals will go unregulated - this dangerous text is now in danger of becoming law throughout the EU.
But it’s not over yet - the European Commission’s proposal must now be approved by the European Parliament on the 3rd of October – there is still time for our voice to be heard.
Call on MEPs to block the European Commission’s weak proposal on endocrine disruptors and avoid jeopardising our health!
