Excerpt
The goals of chemical safety programs encompass the prevention, assessment, and management of both short-term and long-term adverse effects to humans and the environment resulting from the production, use, transport and disposal of chemicals. The tools used internationally to assess and manage the risks of chemicals on human health have generally developed independently from the tools used to assess risks to the environment for practical and historical reasons. However, with increased recognition of the need to protect both humans and the environment more effectively, an integrated approach to risk assessment that addresses situations of multichemical, multimedia, multiroute, and multispecies exposures holistically is needed. The UNEP/ILO/WHO International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS), in collaboration with the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), the European Commission (EC), the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Cooperation, and other international and national organizations developed a working partnership to foster the integration of assessment approaches to evaluate human health and ecological risks. The overall goal of this project was to promote international understanding and acceptance of the integrated risk assessment process. Three specific objectives were identified to meet this goal: 1) enhance understanding of the benefits of integration, 2) identify and understand obstacles to integration, and 3) engage key scientific organizations to promote discussion of an integrated approach to risk assessment.
