The complexity of European regulations is ever increasing, and environmental risk assessment approaches across Europe are being harmonised. With regard to the authorisation of chemicals such as industrial chemicals, household chemicals, pesticides and biocides, there is a need for an internationally recognised standard for those involved with these practices.
Therefore the Certification of Environmental Risk Assessors (CRA) programme was launched with the vision to harmonise and further strengthen the use of up-to-date scientific methods and principles in the environmental risk assessment of chemicals and other stressors. We promote the education in the environmental sciences as well as the advancement and application of scientific research.
Our mission is to identify and maintain a high standard for professionals working in the field of environmental risk assessment.
