SIN list targets endocrine disruptors

NGOs are pushing for stronger action on endocrine disrupting chemicals. ChemSec has added 22 compounds to a growing list of substances highlighted for controls

Swedish NGO ChemSec has added 22 endocrine disrupting chemicals to its chemicals blacklist to draw attention to a lack of EU action on such substances.1

ChemSec’s ‘substitute it now’ (SIN) list now includes 378 chemicals which it says meet the criteria of substances of very high concern (SVHCs), set under the EU’s REACH chemical regime.
