Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals
The European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals aims to advance research, share knowledge and improve skills in chemical risk assessment. By doing so, it is helping to support the European Union's Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, paving the way for the "zero pollution" ambition announced in the European Green Deal.
PARC represents a campaign of unprecedented scale, since it brings together about 200 French and European players, involving national and European health and safety agencies as well as research organisations. PARC encompasses all aspects of chemical risk assessment, including improving the anticipation of emerging risks, better addressing combined risks, and supporting the effective implementation of new European public policy guidelines for the protection of health and the environment in response to major health and environmental challenges and in line with citizens’ expectations.
The partnership is building on work undertaken as part of the European Joint Programme on human biomonitoring, HBM4EU (Human Biomonitoring for Europe), which came to an end in the summer of 2022, and will broaden the scope of its interests specifically to the assessment of environmental risks.
