Endocrine Disruptor List

The aim of this website is to primarily inform stakeholders about the current status of substances identified as endocrine disruptors (EDs), or under evaluation for endocrine disrupting properties within the EU.

The intention of compiling this information is to improve knowledge about EDs, increase transparency, coherence and consistency, as well as coordination across legislative areas. It is also possible that identification and regulation of additional EDs may be facilitated by this single repository of information.
