Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Because of the growing importance of ecotoxicological testing in Europe, an inventory of laboratories involved in ecotoxicological testing in all 12 countries of the European Communities is to be established. Data have been collected on the 35 tests (or types of tests), prescribed at either the base set level, level 1 or level 2 of the technical dossier of the sixth amendment of Directive 67/548/EEC dealing with classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances. The present inventory comprises the information provided by 126 laboratories and should be considered as a first attempt to bring together, in a clearly structured way, information on expertise in ecotoxicity and biodegradation testing in EEC countries.
