Endocrine active substances are chemicals that can interact or interfere with normal hormonal activity; when this leads to adverse effects they are called endocrine disruptors.
EFSA’s Opinion, published on 20 March 2013, reviews currently available testing methods to assist risk managers in defining what may or may not be an endocrine disruptor using science-based criteria. EFSA’s scientific advice will help inform the decisions of EU risk managers to protect consumers and the environment from possible risks associated with endocrine disruptors in the food chain.
