NORMAN : un bilan après dix ans d’activité

Abstract : In 2005, the EC funded the NORMAN project to promote the creation of a permanent network of reference laboratories and research centres, including academia, industry, standardization bodies and NGOs to deal with emerging substances in the environment. NORMAN’s main objectives are to improve exchange of information on contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) and to foster harmonization of protocols and improvement of data quality. Today, NORMAN is an independent and highly recognized network of more than 70 members from all of Europe and beyond. The workshop that was organized to mark the 10th anniversary of the network was an opportunity to take stock of the work done so far and to discuss with the stakeholders (DG ENV, EEA, ECHA, national agencies) the way forward to improving EU-wide collaborations on CECs and related policy-making. It was recognised that a global economy results in worldwide exposure to chemical stressors, including CECs. There was consensus about the crucial role played by research for identification and regulation of CECs. This is even more important in the current context where important global changes of society and industrial activities are taking place as a result of population growth and an ageing population, climate change, new technologies and circular economy. After 10 years of activities, NORMAN has become an essential network in support of EU policies, which facilitates the transfer of state-of-the-art scientific knowledge to policy-makers and regulatory bodies.
