Abstract

Since 1973, the European Community has pursued an active environmental policy, supported by the Community level R:20D in the field of Environment. This policy is entering into a new phase, with the integration of the environmental dimensions into the Community's economic industrial and agricultural policies. Within this overall framework, extensive research on heavy metals pollution has been carried out at EC level. This paper outlines EC environmental policy and environmental research and provides an overview of past, present and possible future work on heavy metals in the environment.
