It was deemed necessary to discuss critically possible strategies to harmonize leaching and extraction schemes for environmental risk assessment and a workshop was held on 4 June, 1994, with participants covering different fields of expertise. The discussions allowed recommendations to be made regarding possible approaches to improve the present situation through the creation of networks, interlaboratory studies prior to the adoption of standardized procedures, field validation of leaching and extraction schemes and production of reference materials certifield for specified leaching and extraction conditions. This paper gives a summary of the round table discussions. An outline of the programme along with the panel of experts participating in this workshop is given in the Appendix.
