Other standardisation organisations

In addition to our OECD and ISO activities, ECT staff members are active in other national and international standardisation organisations. For example, we provided significant input to two biomonitoring guidelines published by the Association of German Engineers (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure, VDI), in which the sampling of specific earthworm species in nation-wide chemical evaluation programs and the selection of the most appropriate organism groups for the general surveillance of genetically modified organisms (GMO) are described.
