The main emphasis of ECT’s consultancy service is on assembling and evaluating data for the environmental risk assessment of industrial chemicals under REACH, biocides, plant protection products and pharmaceuticals. In addition to compiling existing data, we generate new data by using established (Q)SAR models and by subcontracting and monitoring new studies, where necessary. We also assess the environmental risks caused by mixtures of substances and evaluate the hazardous potential of waste.
In cooperation with partners specialized in the environmental fate of chemicals and human toxicology, we support the preparation and submission of full environmental dossiers. Based on scientific principles we provide expert opinions for governmental authorities as well as for chemical industry. In addition, we organize and chair meetings and workshops, where ecotoxicological topics are discussed by stakeholders from various backgrounds.
