Thyroid Disruption: the report of the EU Workshop (March 2017) is on-line

The report describes the outcomes of a project that culminated in a workshop on thyroid disruption, held on 29th - 31st March 2017 in Maison-Alfort near Paris, France, on the premises of ANSES.
The workshop objectives were:

  • To address and discuss interpretations of experimental laboratory studies, wildlife field data as well as human epidemiological data in relation to the identification of thyroid disrupting substances;

  • to identify ways forward in addressing potential gaps in the test methods in relation to identification of thyroid disrupting substances.

Expert survey on identification of gaps in available test methods for evaluation of endocrine disruptors

Expert survey on identification of gaps in available test methods for evaluation of endocrine disruptors

According to the 2012 WHO/UNEP publication 'State of the Science of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals' research into endocrine disrupting chemicals over the last decade has indicated that, despite the progress achieved in development and validation of test methods for evaluation of endocrine disruptors, there are still several gaps that need to be addressed. Considering the expected significant amount of work needed to fill the gaps and the limited resources available, it will be important to set priorities for the upcoming period (next 5-10 years) for the development and validation of test methods. Thus there is a need to focus the European input to the OECD test...
