ClientEarth has released a report indicating that manufacturers are ignoring, misrepresenting or disregarding the potential of certain chemicals to disrupt hormonal systems (EDCs).
The report, REACH registration and endocrine disrupting chemicals, is based on information made available by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) about five such chemicals which are used in a wide range of everyday products, including children’s toys and personal care products like sunscreens and deodorants. Industry is undermining European chemical safety with inadequate reporting of information, this is jeopardising the fundamental REACH principle of “no data, no market”.
