In this report, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) responds to Congress's specific requests for information on: the findings of the Administrator resulting from the screening program; recommendations for further testing needed to evaluate the impact on human health of the substances tested under the screening program; and recommendations for any further actions that the Administrator has determined are appropriate based on the findings. EPA first provides an overview of the endocrine disruptor issues and describes its Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program. We then describe progress in implementing the program. Finally, we present EPA's ongoing research relating to endocrine disruptors and the measures the Agency is taking to address animal welfare concerns under the EDSP.
