The release of some organometallic compounds and other chemical forms of elements in the environment has led to great international concern because of their high toxicity. The validation of the analytical techniques became of paramount importance. The aim of this workshop was to discuss the state of the art of speciation determinations, to define use, applicability and necessity of determinations of element species, to investigate where limitations exist and discuss the work necessary to overcome these and to detect where techniques have sufficiently been developed to produce reliable and valuable results. This paper presents the organisation of the workshop, and describes the state of the current BCR projects on speciation.
