SC1-BHC-27-2018: New testing and screening methods to identify endocrine disrupting chemicals

Deadline: April 18, 2018

There are a variety of natural and anthropogenic chemicals that can produce adverse effects via a disruption of the body's endocrine (hormone) system, referred to as endocrine disruptors (EDs). EDs are of increasing importance in chemical regulations in the European Union, and draft criteria to identify EDs have recently been presented for two pieces of EU legislation.

New and improved approaches are needed to increase the quality and efficiency of existing methods to meet demanding and evolving regulatory requirements worldwide. In consultation with relevant regulatory bodies, research should improve and harmonise screening and testing protocols/strategies and hazard/risk assessments with better and faster tools, methods or models, including high-throughput and in silico methods (e.g. QSAR) combined with research on adverse outcomes pathways.
