CW. 29 September 2014 / Netherlands

The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM) has issued an overview in English of the possible risks of Bisphenol A (BPA) to humans and the environment.

It points out that the current understanding of the plasticiser’s possible endocrine disruptive effects is developing rapidly, and says that during 2015 it will carry out a follow-up study to look at the risks of BPA. This will be used to inform policy advice on whether additional measures are required in the Netherlands to limit the possible risks of the substance.
