TecnATox will be involved in a new European project to urge governments to strengthen the regulation of chemicals, under the initiative European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC).
Chemistry is present in our daily lives through food, packaging, electronics, clothing, etc., but also through the air we breathe. To ensure that these products are safe for health and the environment, TecnATox will be participating in the PARC project, urging governments to improve their safety regulation. PARC, which will last seven years and is coordinated by the Agence Nationale de Sécurité Sanitaire (ANSES), brings together nearly 200 institutions from 45 key countries in the field of research throughout Europe. The partnership will build on work undertaken as part of the European Joint Programme on human biomonitoring, HBM4EU (Human Biomonitoring for Europe), which will come to an end in the summer of 2022, and will broaden the scope of its of interests specifically to the assessment of environmental risks.
In Spain, TecnATox participates in the study as an affiliate partner of the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII), with Dr. Vikas Kumar acting as coordinator of the project within Tecnatox.
