French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety

Assessment of the hazards of bisphenol-group compounds

Published on 12/10/2017

At the request of the Ministry of Health, since 2009 the Agency has been conducting broad-scale expert appraisals on some thirty substances identified as Category 2 reprotoxic substances and/or endocrine disruptors for reproduction and fertility.The substances listed for an expert appraisal, in light of their potential endocrine-disrupting nature, included the bisphenols B and M, and bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE), in addition to bisphenol A. Moreover, as part of its search for potential substitutes for bisphenol A, the Agency decided it was relevant to investigate other compounds, such as bisphenol S, bisphenol AF and bisphenol AP. A specific report was thus produced to assess the potential hazards of these various substances and the possibility of conducting a health risk assessment.
