NGOs express concern about lack of decisions on endocrine disruptors and nanotechnology

31 NGOs including the Alliance for Cancer Prevention have written a letter to the EU REACH Committee in lieu of crucial decisions to be made at next weeks meeting on the identification of endocrine disrupting chemicals and the delayed inclusion of nanoforms in REACH.

We are concerned about the identification of certain phthalates which are substances of very high concern and can be found in a variety of consumer products including cosmetics and plastics. The Alliance is particularly worried about those working with these chemicals and products on a daily basis where exposure can be continual. Delays on addressing nanoforms in REACH will also potentially impact on health of workers and consumers.
