A new paper in ESEU explaining how the NORMAN network can contribute to PARC !
The Partnership for Chemicals Risk Assessment (PARC) is currently under development in the EU to strengthen the scientific basis for chemical risk assessment and facilitate the transition to a non-toxic environment and the European Green Deal. The plan is to bring chemical risk assessors and managers together with scientists to accelerate method development and the production of necessary data and knowledge. In this paper, it is explained how the NORMAN network can provide expert advices to PARC, drawing on its long experience in the development, harmonisation and testing of advanced tools in relation to chemicals of emerging concern and close the gap between research and innovation and regulatory processes.
