To ensure an efficient, transparent and methodologically rigorous re-assessment of the safety for consumers of bisphenol A (BPA), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has undertaken the task to develop a protocol detailing a priori the approach and methodology for performing BPA hazard identification and characterisation. The general aim of this hazard assessment will be to assess whether the new scientific evidence (published from 2013 onwards and not previously appraised by EFSA) still…

Substitution of bisphenol A: a review of the carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, and endocrine disruption potential of alternative substances
TLDR
The aim of this study is to review the available data on carcinogenic, mutagenic, reproductive toxicity, and ED properties of BPA alternatives used in consumer products and indicates a reproductive toxicity hazard with a possible ED mode of action for some of these substances.
Precise Yet Uncertain: Broadening Understandings of Uncertainty and Policy in the BPA Controversy.

    Risk analysis : an official publication of the Society for Risk Analysis
  • 2021
TLDR
It is argued that the strategy used to reduce uncertainty within risk assessment, namely including more variables, studies, data, and methods, amplifies the uncertainty linked to indeterminacy and ambiguity.
EFSA's framework for evidence-based scientific assessments: A case study on uncertainty analysis.
TLDR
This paper focuses on conducting scientific assessments in four steps - with an emphasis on developing a protocol for the assessment a priori - and analysing uncertainty, and provides an example of a framework for evidence-based scientific assessments that is applicable also to other types of evidence, including the one arising from New Approach Methodologies.
Bisphenol A in Africa: A review of environmental and biological levels.
TLDR
A comparative perspective of these levels relative to regulatory limits and levels reported from other continents was presented and critical needs for the regulation of BPA across Africa in order to stem its environmental and toxicological impact were highlighted.
Cumulative health risks for bisphenols using the maximum cumulative ratio among Chinese pregnant women.
TLDR
The intervention for regulation on the production and application of BPA and its alternatives are urgent, and China should consider national regulation on these chemicals based on its risk to human health.
Pharmacokinetics of bisphenol A in humans following dermal administration.
TLDR
Dermal exposure resulted in a longer apparent half-life and higher free:total d6-BPA ratio compared to oral, and Elimination from the body was rate-limited by kinetics in the dermal compartment.
A Method Validation for Simultaneous Determination of Phthalates and Bisphenol A Released from Plastic Water Containers
Phthalates (or phthalate esters, PAEs) and bisphenol A (BPA) are widely used in various industries, particularly in the fields of cosmetics and packaging, and they increase the malleability and
Minor structural modifications of bisphenol A strongly affect physiological responses of HepG2 cells
TLDR
The read-across approach revealed non-applicable in the case of the various structurally and physicochemically comparable bisphenols tested in this study, as the presence of one or two additional methyl group(s) attached at the phenol ring profoundly affected cellular physiology.
Spatial distribution of parabens, triclocarban, triclosan, bisphenols, and tetrabromobisphenol A and its alternatives in municipal sewage sludges in China.
Parabens, triclocarban (TCC), triclosan (TCS), bisphenols (BPs), and tetrabromobisphenol A and its alternatives (TBBPAs) are used in a broad range of daily consumer products and industrial
Placental Vascularization and Apoptosis in Rats Orally Exposed to Low Doses of Bisphenol A
TLDR
Exposure to BPA during pregnancy may affect placental vascularization, and this phenomenon may explain the lower birth weight reported, however, the results do not show the increase in apoptosis observed in vitro.

A statement on the developmental immunotoxicity of bisphenol A (BPA): answer to the question from the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.
TLDR
The CEF Panel overall considers that the results from the two Menard et al. studies are not sufficient to call for a revision of the EFSA t-TDI for BPA, and will start a review of all the scientific evidence published after 2012 and relevant for B PA hazard assessment (including immunotoxicity) in 2017.
Scientific Opinion on Bisphenol A: evaluation of a study investigating its neurodevelopmental toxicity, review of recent scientific literature on its toxicity and advice on the Danish risk assessment of Bisphenol A
TLDR
Overall, based on this comprehensive evaluation of recent toxicity data, the Panel on food contact materials, enzymes, flavourings and processing aids (CEF) concluded that no new study could be identified, which would call for a revision of the current Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI).
Statement on the ANSES reports on bisphenol A
TLDR
The EFSA CEF Panel has analysed whether the ANSES report "Effets sanitaires du bisphenol A" contains any elements that would necessitate a revision of the EFSA opinion, and considers that the information in the ANsES report does not change the views that the Panel expressed in 2010.
Facilitating the use of non‐standard in vivo studies in health risk assessment of chemicals: a proposal to improve evaluation criteria and reporting
TLDR
The purpose of this work was to propose criteria and guidance for the evaluation of reliability and relevance of non‐standard in vivo studies, which could be used to facilitate systematic and transparent evaluation of such studies for health risk assessment.
New directions in toxicity testing.
TLDR
The Nrf2 antioxidant pathway provides a detailed example of how relevant pathway perturbations will be identified within the context of the new NRC vision for the future of toxicity testing.
Update: use of the benchmark dose approach in risk assessment
TLDR
This updated guidance does not call for a general re‐evaluation of previous assessments where the NOAEL approach or the BMD approach as described in the 2009 SC guidance was used, in particular when the exposure is clearly smaller than the health‐based guidance value.
Application of Systematic Review Methodology to Food and Feed Safety Assessments to Support Decision Making
TLDR
This Guidance aims to assist the application of systematic reviews to food and feed safety risk assessments in support of decision making, by describing a framework for identifying the different types of question suitable for systematic review generated by the risk assessment process.
Pharmacokinetics of bisphenol A in humans following a single oral administration.
TLDR
The rate of oral absorption, serum elimination, half-life, area under the curve (AUC), urinary excretion, and metabolism to glucuronide and sulfate conjugates is calculated to reduce uncertainties about the metabolism and excretion of BPA in humans following oral administration.
Guidance on the use of the weight of evidence approach in scientific assessments
Abstract EFSA requested the Scientific Committee to develop a guidance document on the use of the weight of evidence approach in scientific assessments for use in all areas under EFSA's remit. The
Statistical issues and techniques appropriate for developmental neurotoxicity testing: a report from the ILSI Research Foundation/Risk Science Institute expert working group on neurodevelopmental endpoints.
TLDR
Many key considerations in the analysis of DNT studies are reviewed, including issues of Type I error control, power considerations, and ignoring gender, time, and litter allocation as factors in the analyses.
