Eu-HBM

From fragmentation … to harmonisation

In June 2004 the European Commission recognised in its Environment and Health Action Plan the relevance of Human Biomonitoring and the need for more harmonized approaches in Europe to allow for better comparability or results and more efficient use of resources.

The member states joined therefore their efforts which resulted in the twin projects COPHES and DEMOCOPHES working in full cooperation on complementary actions.
