The 2015 environment progress review took place with a record turn-out of 55 scientists from member companies, academia and regulatory authorities such as Cefas, the European Commission, ECHA, EFSA, OECD and UBA.

This annual meeting sets out to inform and review the spectrum of ECETOC environmental activities: task forces, workshops and LRI projects. The first day consisted of a review of existing ECETOC and LRI projects. The second day focussed on identifying new ideas for ECETOC and LRI activities.
