Abstract

<h5>Preface</h5> The National Toxicology Program (NTP) 1 established the NTP Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction (CERHR) in June 1998. The purpose of the CERHR is to provide timely, unbiased, scientifically sound evaluations of the potential for adverse effects on reproduction or development resulting from human exposures to substances in the environment. The NTP‐CERHR is headquartered at NIEHS, Research Triangle Park, NC, and is staffed and administered by scientists and support personnel at NIEHS. Bisphenol A is a high‐production volume chemical used in the production of epoxy resins, polyester resins, polysulfone resins, polyacrylate resins, polycarbonate plastics, and flame retardants. Polycarbonate plastics are used in food and drink packaging; resins are used as lacquers to coat metal products such as food cans, bottle tops, and water supply pipes. Some polymers used in dental sealants and tooth coatings contain bisphenol A. Exposure to the general population can occur through direct contact with bisphenol A or by exposure to food or drink that has been in contact with a material containing bisphenol A. CERHR selected bisphenol A for evaluation because of (1) high production volume; (2) widespread human exposure; (3) evidence of reproductive toxicity in laboratory animal studies;
