Letter to Dutch Members of European Parliament: EU Criteria for endocrine disrupting chemicals will not protect health

The European Commission’s proposed criteria for identifying endocrine disrupting chemicals should be amended, as they will not protect the health of European citizens. In a letter to Dutch European Members of Parliament (MEPs), HEAL joined two other organisations - Wemos and Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) - to call upon them to reject the current criteria.

With the letter, HEAL, Wemos, and WECF express their concerns about the European Commission’s criteria’s flaws.

The letter can be read online here (available in Dutch only).
