Based on the scientific results of the MILCH project, a dialogue with the stakeholders involved in the manufacture of baby/infant’s products of common usage and of artificial milk will be launched in order to reduce the possible contamination by Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) .

Informational documents will be produced in this respect and meetings on the subject will be promoted. The perspective goal is the subscription of voluntary agreements for the reduction of possible EDCs in infant formula and therefore in the child.

Another important outcome will be the promotion of an “*EDC-free*” label. The “*EDC-free*” label should work as an informal certification of quality to be attributed following specific criteria. The consumer awareness concerning the risks for their health due to EDCs exposure could address future choices towards high quality “*EDC-free*” products.
