In 2018, the European Commission adopted criteria to assess whether a biocide or pesticide is an endocrine disruptor. A guidance document was written on how to do this in practice. In this webinar, FREIA partner Julie Boberg (Technical University of Denmark) will explain the process of ED identification, using butylparaben as an example.
Butylparaben is often used in cosmetics to prevent microbial growth. It is on the candidate list of substances of very high concern of the European Chemicals Agency for its endocrine disrupting properties.
Not only will Ms Boberg show that butylparaben has more negative effects on reproduction than previously thought, but she will also explain how this substance is a great example of how current criteria and EDC identification tools may also be suitable for other chemical regulations.
This webinar is organised by the FREIA project, with support from the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL). Participation is free. For more details, please contact email@example.com
