The growing number and global diffusion of both chemicals themselves and regulation of chemicals imply a tremendous challenge for both research and policy. In Europe the most recent development of this is the emergence of the REACH programme of the European Union. Global developments are also of considerable interest however, and regulation on the national level is still very diverse.

The multidisciplinary nature of understanding and meeting this challenge is reflected in the conference, which welcomes contributions from both natural and social science. The conference is open for both academics and practitioners, including people representing the media, industry, government and NGOs. Although the geographical focus is on the development in Europe, observations from other parts of the world that are useful for comparative analysis are greatly appreciated.

The organising committee consist of Assoc. Prof. Johan Eriksson, Assoc. Prof. Michael Gilek, Dr. Christina Rudén and Assoc. Prof. Camilla Hermansson, situated at Södertörn University College.
