Joint Statement on 2012 WHO-UNEP Endocrine Disruptors Report
The American Chemistry Council, Cefic, CropLife America, CropLife Canada, CropLife International, and the European Crop Protection Association have released a joint statement on the 2012 WHO-UNEP report.
This broad coalition has found that the report should not be used for the basis of supporting chemical polices on endocrine disruptors, as the report does not provide an objective assessment of the current state of the science on endocrine disruption. WHO-UNEP chose not to use a transparent process for author selection, failed to employ best practices, and relied on opinion instead of the use of a transparent weight-of-evidence framework for objectively integrating results for determining cause and effect at relevant levels of exposure.
