Euro Parliament wants action on EDCs to protect health

On 14 March 2013, the European Parliament voted to pass the Westlund report on the protection of public health from Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDC’s), which are known to be one of the risk factors for breast cancer. The report is the strongest expression of Parliament’s position on EDCs in quite a while. While it is a non-legislative report, it will be influential for the European Commission’s further work on EU EDCs policy – in REACH, in the Criteria for identifying ED pesticides, biocides and beyond; and the overall EU Strategy on EDCs, including international work.
