Challenges for scientists to make appropriate risk assessment and for policy makers to establish an appropriate legislative framework. Development of Endocrine Active Substances Information System (EASIS) undertaken by JRC-IHCP.

On 11-12 June 2012 the European Commission's Directorate-General for the Environment organised a conference on endocrine disruptors in close collaboration with the Joint Research Centre-Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (JRC-IHCP). 

The aim of the conference was to understand the current knowledge on endocrine disrupting chemicals with respect to science and regulatory aspects. The challenges for scientists to make appropriate risk assessment and for policy makers to establish an appropriate legislative framework were discussed.

The JRC-IHCP supported the organisation of the event and contributed actively by chairing sessions and acting as rapporteur. Information on the development of the Endocrine Active Substances Information System (EASIS) being undertaken by the JRC-IHCP was also communicated by a poster (downloadable below)
