Recommendations for ef fectively reducing exposure to endocrine disruptive pesticides & biocides

Beginning in June 2018, chemical substances with properties that are damaging to the human and animal hormone system will be regulated for the first time on the basis of defined scientific criteria and evaluation methods. These EU regulations will be implemented in June for biocide products, about five years later than originally planned. Similar regulations for pesticides will follow in November. PAN Germany considers these regulatory measures to be a step in the right direction. However, they are inadequate to ensure an appreciable reduction of exposure of humans and the environment to so-called endocrine disruptors in the foreseeable future. There is an urgent need for more action to realize this goal set by the European Union (EU).
