Update on Appendix E of the EFSA/ECHA Guidance Document for the Identification of Endocrine Disruptors

At the end of December 2018, the Excel template for reporting the available information relevant for ED assessment in Appendix E of the ‘Guidance for the identification of endocrine disruptors in the context of Regulations (EU) No 528/2012 and (EC) No 1107/2007’ was replaced by a new version, along with a document on how to fill it in. Both files can now be found in the following link under the ‘Supplements’ section in the left upper corner:

This new version includes several changes with respect to the initial Excel template. One of the most noticeable change being the list of parameters under the drop-down menu in column Z ‘Effect target’, which have increased significantly for some study types, enabling more parameters to be represented in the data matrix, rather than under the ‘Not listed’ category. New features have also been added, such as the possibility to create a specific data-matrix (sub-matrix), allowing to report only information for mammals, wildlife and in vitro studies, respectively. In addition, once the data matrix is created, it is also now possible under the ‘Data summary’ to select the relevant effects (i.e. all effects related to thyroid activity) to start building the lines of evidence and generate a table with them.
