Review proposal for the classification of bisphenol A (BPA)

A proposal to revise the classification of BPA was presented by France to ECHA (European Chemical Agency). It relates to the reclassification of BPA of the category 2 to category 1B. Consequently, ECHA has opened a consultation period of 45 days, during which interested parties may comment on the proposed reclassification and labeling of BPA. This consultation focuses in particular on the harmful effects of BPA on fertility and sexual functions, but does not include the dangers for development. The consultation period ends on 11 October 2013.
