In an article published on November 6, 2018, by regulatory news provider Chemical Watch, correspondent Clelia Oziel informed that the European Commission (EC) will adopt a communication “outlining its long-awaited framework on endocrine disrupting chemicals [(EDCs)]” on November 7, 2018. In June 2018, the EC published a roadmap for an EU framework on EDCs and announced plans to prepare a communication (FPF reported). The communication will be “adopted at a meeting of the college of commissioners” and “a technical briefing [will] be held immediately after the college meeting,” Oziel reported.

Several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have criticized the EC’s EDC roadmap and the announced communication in a public consultation that was held from June 21 to July 19, 2018 (FPF reported). The NGOs called for concrete actions to reduce exposure to EDCs and highlighted the importance of addressing EDCs across all EU legislations.
