Canada is considering expanding its use of cumulative assessments of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) under a broader post-2020 risk assessment framework, according to reports out of recent stakeholder meetings in Ottawa.
Members of the Canadian government, chemical industry and NGO community met on November 26-29 to take stock of recent and upcoming developments in chemical regulation. The gathering included:
»a multi-stakeholder workshop on the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP);
»a CMP Stakeholder Advisory Council (SAC) meeting;
»a workshop on informed substitution with Canadian retailers; and
»a science committee meeting.
According to SAC member Fe De Leon – a researcher and paralegal with the Canadian Environmental Law Association (Cela) – particular attention was paid to endocrine disruptors and how the government will assess and regulate them as a part of its post-2020 programme.
