The Berlaymont Declaration on Endocrine Disruptors

The European Commission is currently drawing up plans for the regulation of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Many interest groups have already commented on these efforts. Motivated by concerns that regulation should follow the best of the available science, scientists actively engaged in researching endocrine disrupters have drawn up the 2013 Berlaymont Declaration, see here:

Text of the Berlaymont Declaration on Endocrine Disruptors with signatures as of 22 October 2013

The declaration derives its name from a June 2012 meeting in the Berlaymont complex in Brussels, which was convened by the European Commission to promote a dialogue on the topic between various stakeholders.

The Declaration was initially signed by 89 scientists and sent to the European Commissioners for Industry, Health, Research and Environment. It has also been launched in the press and has received extensive interest and support . Based on this interest, it was decided to keep the Declaration open for signature by scientists who are engaged in researching any aspect of endocrine disruption and the endocrine system.
