"An adequate margin of safety exists for BPA at current levels of exposure from food contact uses, for infants and adults"
US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), January 2010
"Levels of BPA in the human body are very low, indicating that BPA is not accumulated in the body and is rapidly eliminated."
World Health Organization (WHO), November 2010
"An adequate margin of safety exists for BPA at current levels of exposure from food contact uses, for infants and adults"
US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), January 2010
"The highest estimates for aggregated exposure to BPA from both dietary and non-dietary sources are 3 to 5 times lower than the TDI, depending on the age group."
EFSA fact sheet, January 2015
"The current Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) level for BPA is adequately justified."
German Society for Toxicology, April 2011

Studies and Reports on Bisphenol A

In this section, you will find links to the latest studies and scientific reports related to bisphenol A.

  • Swedish Food Agency study confirms that BPA is rapidly eliminated by the body

    The National Food Agency measured the levels of BPA in the blood of 208 first-time mothers. Blood samples were taken three weeks after conception and were collected from 1996 to 2011. The sample results showed that the levels of BPA in blood are extremely low, generally below 0.2 nanograms per milliliter. Read more here.

  • Scientific evaluation shows shortcomings of study on low-dose effects

    A new scientific evaluation of the recent Vandenberg et al low dose study was conducted by Rhomberg/Goodman. The evaluation concluded that the Vandenberg et al study fails to provide sufficient evidence for low-dose effects and overlooks the evidence against low-dose effects.

  • Japanese authorities: BPA does not pose a significant risk to human health

    The Japanese National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science and Technology has updated its human health risk assessment of BPA. It reconfirmed that BPA does not pose a significant risk to human health. Read more here.

  • 24-Hour Human Urine and Serum Profiles of Bisphenol A During High Dietary Exposure (Teeguarden et.al.) - published in Toxicological Sciences

    The results of a new FDA study investigating the actual dietary exposure to BPA in humans were published in June. They reconfirm that BPA is efficiently metabolized and rapidly excreted via urine. To read the abstract of the study, click here.

  • Migration of bisphenol A from cash register receipts - Danish EPA

    The Danish Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that BPA in paper receipts does not pose a risk to consumers or cashiers who handle the receipts. Even if they are pregnant, and even when taking into account the potential BPA exposure from food. To view the report, click here.

  • German Society of Toxicology study on Bisphenol A

    At the beginning of April, the German Society of Toxicology has concluded that the current TDI for BPA is adequately justified, and that BPA exposure represents no noteworthy risk to the health of the human population, including newborns and babies.

  • Joint FAO/WHO Expert Meeting on BPA

    In November 2010, over 30 experts attended a joint FAO/WHO meeting to review toxicological and health aspects of BPA. The summary report containing the collective views of an international group of experts can be consulted here.

  • 2010 EFSA Scientific Opinion on Bisphenol A

    EFSA has evaluated a dietary developmental neurotoxicity study in rats (Stump, 2009) and recent scientific literature (2007-2010) on BPA. Overall, based on the comprehensive evaluation of recent toxicity data, the EFSA-expert Panel concluded that no new study could be identified, which would call for a revision of the current TDI.

  • Austrian food and health safety agency publishes migration tests of BPA from baby bottles

    The Austrian Food Safety Agency (AGES) has examined plastics baby bottles for migration of BPA. The results of this tests show that migration values are far below the specific migration limit of 0,6 mg/kg food. To view AGES statement, click here.

  • BfR assesses latest studies on BPA

    The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) evaluated the results of two studies investigating suspected adverse effects of BPA. It concluded that these studies do not substantiate the concerns for a specific toxicpotential of BPA adverse to neurological and behavioural development. For BfR assessment, click here.
