A Toxics-Free Future


Thought Starter Paper on Endocrine Disrupting Pesticides and SAICM

Pesticides Action Network (PAN) and IPEN
August 2013

Executive summary

Endocrine disrupting (ED) pesticides are a threat to human health and the
environmentwith potentially serious lifelong effects especially when the developing
foetus and small children are exposed. The nature of their use results in deliberate
release into the environment and results in pervasive environmental contamination.
For SAICM work on EDCs to be relevant to developing and transition countries
where chemical exposures due to agriculture are significant, ED pesticides should be
included in the EDC workplan.
