Euro DEHP RA (risk assessment) by June?

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The European Union's routine risk assessment of DEHP, the softener used in PVC medical devices, could be into its final stages by early June. That is when the next sitting of the quarterly "technical meeting on existing chemicals" is held, in Arona, Italy. Member state representatives attending the last meeting, in mid-March, requested more time to review new findings on toxicity in rats, by Schilling (2002), a two-generation study in rats, and those contained in a report presented to the US Society of Toxicology meeting in Nashville on March 20. EU member states have until April 19 to put forward their final position.
