Endocrine disruptors: regulation urgently needed at the EU level (EN/FR)

Endocrine disruptors are substances that interfere with human hormones. We are all exposed to them on a daily basis through products such as food packaging, clothing, cosmetics and children's toys. This is why the European Parliament has been working on measures to prevent any harm derived from these substances for several years. When the issue was brought to the EU Court of Justice by Sweden, the court ruled that the European Commission failed in meeting the deadline to identify and ban potentially harmful endocrine disruptors. And yet there is still no plan to speed up this process.

Today the Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament called on the Commission to take up its responsibilities.
