22 XII 2021 - Bisphenol A is the main component of polycarbonate bottle. EFSA draught opinion proposes lowering the BPA tolerable daily intake from 4 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day to 0.04 nanograms. 

More info on https://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/news/bisphenol-efsa-draft-opinion-proposes-lowering-tolerable-daily-intake. Those info is available in English🇬🇧, French 🇫🇷, German🇩🇪, Italian🇮🇹 and Spanish🇪🇸.

This project is published after the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to identify BPA as hazardous for the endocrine system and therefore of very high concern. This decision was confirmed by the Court of Justice of the EU rejecting attempts by PlasticsEurope to reverse the ECHA decision.

Reducing the tolerable daily intake by a 100 000 factor is a major change!

Data about the BPA concentration in water packed in polycarbonate bottles are available on ANSES website (https://www.anses.fr/fr/system/files/CHIM2009sa0331Ra-0.pdf - sorry in French page 145) and on the government of Canada website (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-safety/packaging-materials/bisphenol/survey-bisphenol-bottled-water-products.html pages 8-9) with values from 0,067 to 4,208 mg/l and 0,50 à 8,82 mg/l.

This literature also confirmed there is no BPA in PET bottles.
