The United Nations says SIN List is a frontrunner



Two years ago, a draft version of a report reviewing different initiatives for identifying endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) was published. But, after receiving huge amounts of criticism from industry it fell into oblivion. Or so it seemed anyway.

Now the final report has been launched, together with two complementing reports.

They were written for the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) by the International Panel on Chemicals Pollution, and focus on reviewing existing initiatives for identifying and regulating EDCs.

The report highlights three initiatives, of the 28 reviewed, as having the most robust and transparent approaches.

The SIN List is one of them, the other two are the Candidate List and a Danish evaluation of the SIN List.
