New update of ED Lists

Nouvelle mise à jour des ED Lists

Since 2020, the “Endocrine Disruptor Lists” website, developed and maintained by five national authorities in European Union Member States, has compiled a list of substances known or suspected to act as endocrine disruptors. It has just been updated again in June 2024.

As a reminder, this website was set up at the initiative of the competent authorities in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark, joined in 2021 by Spain. Its main aim is to provide information on the status of substances identified as endocrine disruptors or under evaluation in the EU for their endocrine-disrupting properties.

It comprises three lists, which are updated regularly.
• List I: substances identified as endocrine disruptors at EU level.
• List II: Substances under assessment for endocrine disruption under EU legislation.
• List III: Substances considered by a national authority to have endocrine disrupting properties.

With regard to the substances on these lists that may be used in cosmetics, this latest update mainly involves:
• Sodium fluoride, added to list II following the intention submitted by France of a CLH classification as an endocrine disruptor for human health
• The removal from list II of Benzophenone-4, Butylparaben (still on list I) and Benzyl Salicylate, the SCCS assessments for these substances having been finalised.
