There is a brilliant dispar.ity among the power of the foremost commercial international locations to provide and distribute chemical compounds and our skill to realize the character and power severity of unintentional results for guy, his lifestyles aid structures and the surroundings usually. moreover, the distance among our skill to supply and distribute myriad chemical compounds and our skill to spot, comprehend or are expecting adverse environmental affects could widen. As environmental scientists we're aware of the interrelatedness, not just of environmental structures, yet of countries to boot. fabrics are always moved throughout barriers through human in addition to ordinary enterprises. the level, price and nature of move for many pollution is basically unknown. we will be able to simply wager which of the varied chemical substances produced are applicants for quandary. extra vital nonetheless is our sensible lack of understanding of the mechanisms of power results upon typical structures and of the concentrations, combos and conditions that can result in irreversibilities or to critical effects for guy. we all know little or no additionally concerning the strength for or the categories of oblique results that will take place. With admire to the environmentltself, we all know little of its assimilative skill with reference to commonly dispersed toxins and their transformation items. yet what we do comprehend is disquieting, and a much-improved method for the review and administration of poisonous and dangerous chemical compounds is needed.

Laboratory tests for the determination of physico-chemical properties, toxicology and ecotoxicology are useful tools which one can use for this task. Tests programmes should be designed to be efficient, simple, rapid, as nearly representative of environmental situations as possible, and of a cost compatible with the commercial interests of the development of a new product. Such a programme has been the object of international regulations. As an example we can mention the recent Council Directive 67/831/EEC of 18 September, 1979, amending for the sixth time Directive 67/ 548/EEC on the administrative provisions relating to the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances (1).

For example: The group of scientific experts approved lists of pollutants or pollutant categories which have to be selected for monitoring environmental materials. The following three broad classifications were established: a) Inorganic substances (including organo metallic compounds) b) Organo-halogenated compounds c) Other organic compounds One goal of the 1978 International Workshop was to develop a more detailed categorization of organic compounds and to establish a list of high-priority categories and substances for inclusion in an environmental monitoring programme.
