Danes assess uses of endocrine disrupters
The Danish environmental protection agency is to carry out a substance flow analysis on resorcinol and 4-nitrotoluene, both on the EU list of 66 "category one" substances exhibiting endocrine disrupting effects (EED 10/07/00). The two chemicals are among only five on the EU list not currently banned or restricted. The agency will also look at 22 pesticides on the list to establish whether they have additional uses. Some or all of these substances may be added to the Danish list of undesirable substances when it is revised next year. See newsletter.
