EPA Posts Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program Management Plan
EPA has posted the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) Comprehensive Management Plan on its website. The purpose of the EPA's EDSP is to protect people, wildlife and our environment from chemicals that may affect endocrine systems by screening pesticides, chemicals and environmental contaminants for their potential effects on estrogen, androgen and thyroid hormone systems. EPA's EDSP Comprehensive Management Plan provides strategic guidance for agency personnel and outlines the critical activities that are planned for this program over the next five years. The plan is intended as an internal planning document, but is being made available to the public in order to be as transparent as possible.
For more information, the plan is available at http://www.epa.gov/endo
