We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Under the European Commission's Better Regulation initiative the JRC is leading a Fitness Check of the EU legislation for the identification and control of endocrine disrupting substances. Stakeholder consultation is an important part of any Fitness Check. This report provides a brief factual overview of the responses received over an 8 week period from 06/12/19 to 31/01/20 to over 30 questions addressed to stakeholder organisations such as businesses, public authorities, academia, research organisations, or civil society organisations. The aims of the consultation were to collect views on effectiveness, efficiencies and possible legislative incoherencies of EU legislation with respect to EDs and possible impacts on stakeholders. Two other types of consultations conducted under this Fitness Check, one focused on citizens and the other on small and medium-sized enterprises will be reported separately. Responses will provide an essential input to the Fitness Check analysis carried out by the JRC. A more detailed analysis of the responses to each of consultations will be published in a synopsis report along with Fitness Check evaluation at the end of the process.
