Abstract

During the period 1984-88, the Scientific Advisory Committee was requested by the Commission to advise on certain topics concerning the toxicity and ecotoxicity of chemical compounds. The advice of the Committee was used as scientific background for the preparation of principles and definitions for new legislative proposals or for the implementation of action programmes. Specific evaluations in these fields addressed items for proposals for adaptations to technical progress or amendments of parts of the European legislation; in some cases, urgent answers had to be provided on specific problems or to answer parliamentary questions. A series of subsidiary directives on individual substances or groups of substances had to be established in the framework of the Directive 76/464/EEC of 4 May 1976 (OJ L 129, 18.5.1976) on pollution caused by certain dangerous substances discharged into the aquatic environment of the Community. The need arose to give scientific background for the Commission's proposals.
