Conclusion (iii) There is a need for limiting the risks; risk reduction measures which are already being applied shall be taken into account.

This conclusion is reached because of:
• concerns for children with regard to testicular effects, fertility, and toxicity to kidneys, on repeated exposure as a consequence of oral exposure from toys and child-care articles, and multiple routes of exposure.
• concerns for children undergoing long-term blood transfusion and neonates undergoing transfusions with regard to testicular toxicity and fertility, as a consequence of exposure from materials in medical equipment containing DEHP.
• concerns for adults undergoing long-term haemodialys with regard to repeated dose toxicity to kidney and testis, fertility, and developmental toxicity, as a consequence of exposure from materials in medical equipment containing DEHP.

Conclusion (iii) There is a need for limiting the risks; risk reduction measures which are already being applied shall be taken into account.

This conclusion is reached because of:
• concerns for children with regard to testicular effects, fertility, and toxicity to kidneys, on repeated exposure as a consequence of exposure via food locally near sites processing polymers with DEHP, or sites producing sealants and/or adhesives, paints and lacquers or printing inks with DEHP. The scenarios that give concern are generic scenarios based on default emission data. There is no concern for the limited number of sites that have reported measured emission data.
• concerns for children with regard to testicular toxicity, as a consequence of exposure via food grown locally near sites recycling paper or municipal sewage treatment plants. The scenarios that give concern are generic scenarios based on default emission data. »
