SGS keeps stakeholders up to date with French endocrine disruptor regulations

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published SafeGuardS 139.23 to provide stakeholders with an overview of France’s latest move to regulate endocrine disruptors.

Article 13-II of the Decree No. 2020-105 on the ‘Fight Against Waste and the Circular Economy’ requires manufacturers and suppliers of products for French markets to disclose the presence of endocrine disruptors (ED). ED properties can be proven, presumed or suspected by the nation’s Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety.

On October 12, 2023, France issued three pieces of legislation relating to ED in products. These specify:
– Terms and conditions relating to the content and conditions of presentation of the information
– Requirement to establish two lists of substances with ED properties
– Requirement on the provision of information to identify ED in a product by means of an application

SGS has published SafeGuardS 139.23 to provide a complete overview of the three decrees and details of the requirements for businesses operating in France.

Stakeholders are advised to review the original SafeGuardS for more information.

The provisions in the three decrees came into effect on October 13, 2023.
