A limit of 0.0025 mg/l for bisphenol A in drinking water will apply in Germany as of 12.01.2024. Bisphenol A is a chemical compound with an estrogen-like effect on the endocrine system. Among other things, it is suspected of being a reproductive toxin and harmful to humans. Bisphenol A can enter drinking water through migration of epoxy resin coatings from pipes. It can also be found in many everyday items such as toys and food and beverage packaging. High temperatures and an acidic or alkaline environment can promote the migration of bisphenol A from the material into food or drinking water.
