Workshop on soil risk assessment – material available

The European Chemicals Agency and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) hosted a scientific workshop on soil risk assessment on 7 and 8 October. The event focused on the safe use of industrial chemicals, biocides and pesticides, aiming to prevent soil contamination. Over 200 participants representing academia, industry, regulators and stakeholders discussed assessing the risks of chemical substances in soil. The workshop also aimed to address how the long-term challenges from the regulatory perspective can be reflected in research on soil risk assessment. The discussions were reinforced by case studies, information on the recent developments in this field and on risk assessment methodologies applied in chemicals management. The presentations are available on the event page. A video recording is also coming soon. Further information from the workshop is available at: Event page
