The European Parliament recently approved a new EU regulation aimed at eliminating the use of pesticides that have unwanted endocrine-disrupting properties. The test criteria for these chemicals are slated to be finalized by 2013. For this reason, in this review, we have evaluated the meta data of lists and databanks that address pesticides with potentially endocrine-disrupting properties, and have checked which of the 250 active ingredients currently in use in Germany are affected.

Comparative Study of Organochlorine Pesticide Residuesin Water of Both Edko Lake and Fish Farm in El-BehiraGovernorate, Egypt
The objective of this study is to determine the residues of Organochlorine Pesticides (OCPs) residues in water of both Edko lake and fish farm in Abu Hummus region at El-Behira Governorate, Egypt.
The Impact of Washing and Peeling of Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Reduction of Daily Intake of Dithiocarbamates
The daily intake of DTCs was reduced by washing with water and peeling significantly, but, because the entrance of fungicides into the human body by other commodities, these daily intakes are considerable.
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) Biosensors for Determination of Carbamate Pesticides
Enzymatic biosensors-based acetylcholinesterase offers a simple, rapid, high sensitivity and on-site monitoring for determination of carbamate pesticide concentrations, and the immobilization techniques and carbamate pesticides toxicity discussed are discussed.
Subacute Effects of the Thiodicarb Pesticide on Target Organs of Male Wistar Rats: Biochemical, Histological, and Flow Cytometry Studies

Endocrine disrupting pesticides: implications for risk assessment.
Point- and nonpoint-source pesticide contamination in the Zwester Ohm catchment, Germany.
The study points out that the influence of CSO on PSP should be taken into account in future catchment studies in areas with comparable agricultural structure, and no significant interdependencies between intrinsic properties of the pesticides, hydrometeorological factors, and the loads occurring in the stream could be found.

A comparison of the measured river loads with the modeled inputs from non-point sources leads to the conclusion that in most regions of Germany the largest portion of the load is due to the input from farm effluents.
Assessment of the impact on crop protection in the UK of the cut-off criteria and substitution provisions in the proposed Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the placing of plant protection products in the market
This paper is a summary of a more comprehensive document published in May 2008 which presents an analysis of the potential impact of the Commission proposal on �cut-off criteria� and substitution and

Gewässerbelastung durch Pflanzenschutzmittel in drei Einzugsgebieten
Measurements in three rural sewage plants in Hesse (central Germany) have shown, that in the outflow loads of pesticides used in agriculture increased with growing pesticide use and those of non-agricultural pesticides increased as a function of urbanized area.
