Environment Australia, 1998
This document was prepared in April 1998 in response to public enquiries to relevant Commonwealth Government agencies about their current views on health and environmental aspects of the issue of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
It addresses a series of common questions. Input to responses is from Environment Australia (EA), the Department of Health and Family Services (DHFS), in particular the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and the Australia New Zealand Food Authority (ANZFA), and NICNAS (National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme) and the Chemical Assessment Division of the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC).
EA and DHFS have the lead on environmental and health issues, respectively, but work cooperatively with other agencies involved in the assessment and regulation of chemicals, including ANZFA, NICNAS and the National Registration Authority for Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (NRA).
