ClientEarth and its partner organisations are continuing the fight against the use of two chemicals of high concern in paints.
Under pressure from a number of member states, the European Commission has revived a push to water down rules that protect against endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in pesticides.
Legal experts from environmental law charity ClientEarth have joined other key organisations working in the public interest in outlining the current weaknesses of current food contact material regulation.
ClientEarth lawyers are demanding increased transparency from the European Parliament and European Council on why certain chemicals allowed in food are considered safe.
ClientEarth has rejected the European Commission’s view that current regulation governing endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC) is sufficient when blatant gaps still exist.
