We analyze chemicals legislation from an ecotoxicological perspective. In particular, the risk assessment process, including selection, interpretation and evaluation of scientific data to reach conclusions on environmental risks. Our overall aim is to help bridge the gap between science and regulatory decision-making and improve the scientific basis of chemicals risk management.
