The aim of the present project was to identify the most relevant factors increasing the uncertainty of the environmental risk assessment (ERA) of endocrine active substances as compared to baseline toxicants. The evaluation was supported by data on endocrine effects of six model substances on fish and aquatic invertebrates.
Substances of very high concern under REACH - an evaluation of uncertainties in the environmental risk assessment of endocrine active substances

The Decalogue's main objective is to inform consumers about possible risks arising from exposure to certain chemical found in everyday items, including sources of exposure to these substances and possible alternatives. Substances are those studied during the PREVIENI project : BPA, DEHP, PAHs, PFCs, PBDE’s.
This section collects scientific references on possible approaches aimed to mitigate the exposure and/or hazard from endocrine disrupters and other contaminants in food chains and the environment .
