The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, or Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR), announced its endorsement of the European Food Safety Authority's (EFSA) January 2015 scientific opinion that exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) is not a public health risk. In BfR communication No. 005/2015, published February 19, 2015, the German agency also endorsed the new temporary Tolerable Daily Intake (t-TDI) of 4 µg/kg bw per day that EFSA calculated based on new data and more sophisticated methods than were used to calculate the previous t-TDI of 50 µg/kg bw per day.
In an FAQs document on BPA in consumer products, also updated Feb. 19, 2015, BfR stated: "So far, no unequivocal evidence for the detrimental effects to human health of bisphenol A has been presented. In the human body, the substance is quickly converted into a metabolite which in itself no longer has any typical oestrogen-like effect and which is excreted via the kidneys."
