A study published by Umweltbundesamt (UBA), Germany’s federal environment agency, has identified potential hazards associated with the use of bisphenol A (BPA).

UBA says it will “scrutinize this [Reach] dossier and then take decisions on which additional efficient measures for the protection of human health and environment are possible and necessary.”...
