The aim of this report was to assess the current international status of ED, with regard to scientific research, regulatory and legislative issues, and chemical testing and screening strategies. There are clearly differences between the approaches used to research, regulate and screen for ED and EDCs around the world. The report considers the different approaches in Europe; Japan; USA; and OECD countries. In summary, ED is still seen to be an important part of the scientific and regulatory agenda. Much effort continues to be spent on research of ED and EDCs, both on human health and environmental protection. There is a great deal of collaboration on the ED issue within Europe, and more specifically on the development of screening methods internationally.
