SETAC Europe is dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of stressors, chemicals, and technology on the environment. The SETAC Europe 32nd Annual Meeting is being planned to take place as a physical meeting featuring virtual components. The in-person event will take place at the Bella Center Copenhagen, scandinavia's largest congress-, conference- and exhibition center.

We're able to carry out laboratory tests and higher-tier tests. The aim of any higher-tier test research project is providing data for higher-tier environmental risk assessments in the context of the registration and admission of plant protection products on the EU and/or US market.
The concept of tiered approaches is to start with a simple conservative assessment and to only do additional more complex work if necessary. The first tier includes triggers that are calculated from the predicted environmental concentration (PEC) and toxicity estimated of the pesticides. If the first-tier triggers indicate that the pesticide shows a potentially unacceptable risk, consideration is given to collecting and evaluating information in the higher-tier tests (semi-field and field tests).
Field and semi-field studies are important tools in the ecotoxicological risk assessment of plant protection products. While these studies represent far more realistic conditions than laboratory tests, they also present a challenge, for our experts, for the analysis and interpretation due to the large and complex datasets.
Despite traditional ecotoxicological tests being an irreplaceable tool, for comparative and screening estimation of the adverse effects of potentially dangerous chemicals, the need is for more ecologically-based approaches which has now been recognized by the scientific community
and has been highlighted international regulators. Hence the high tier studies represent the future of ecotoxicology!
