WEMOS – Seminar on EDCs

On 6 September, Wemos organised a seminar for Dutch Members of Parliament to discuss the effects and costs of hormone disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in the Netherlands. Together with special guest speakers Dr. Marjorie van Duursen (University of Utrecht) and Professor Bourguignon (Endocrine Society), the EU Commission’s proposed criteria for identifying EDCs and the European decision-making process were also discussed.

Wemos has long called on the EU to ban endocrine disrupting substances. They also find it necessary that the Netherlands implement national measures against these substances.
