Endocrine disrupters: Lack of prudence of the Commission, despite the new criteria

Press release of Mireille D'ornano, co-signed by Sylvie Gherardi and Jean-François Jacob:

On Wednesday, 15 June, the European Commission finally published the criteria for the definition of endocrine disrupters, following its condemnation by the European Union Court of Justice in December 2015.

The Commission's position is proving to be largely inadequate. Indeed, the derogations it allows provide for an approach by assessing the risk and not the intrinsic danger posed by endocrine disrupters.

The members of the national Front denounce the fact that States remain dependent on European assessments, which, even in the event of controversy, do not respect the precautionary principle.
