New toxicity tests, field studies urged for endocrine-disrupting chemicals

Chemical manufacturers face significant increases in testing costs if the recommendations of an EC advisory committee for extra tests - some at lower levels of production - to detect endocrine-disrupting effects of chemicals are accepted. The committee also urges new programmes of biomonitoring and field studies to assess the impact of endocrine disruptors on European wildlife and to improve the prospect for establishing cause-and-effect relationships between chemical exposures and impacts on ecosystems.
