Online Training “Introduction to Ecotoxicology and Environmental Risk Assessment“

Overview Programme Speakers Venue Prices & Services

Overview

A large number of hazardous substances are released into the environment and it is essential to assess their impact on ecosystems. For example, registrants are obliged to collect ecotoxicological information and extended safety data sheets (eSDS) for hazardous substances must include respective exposure scenarios. 

Understanding the various fields of ecotoxicology and being able to summarise the right information is indispensable. This course will familiarise you with ecotoxicological terminology, concepts and tests and will explain the different exposure models for risk assessment of chemicals in the environment. 

This course has been set up as a first introduction and does not require prior knowledge in ecotoxicology. However, a basic knowledge in chemistry is recommended.

  • Understand ecotoxicological concepts and relevant test methods
  • Gain an overview of the relevant legislation
