The NORMAN network enhances the exchange of information on emerging environmental substances, and encourages the validation and harmonisation of common measurement methods and monitoring tools so that the requirements of risk assessors and risk managers can be better met. It specifically seeks both to promote and to benefit from the synergies between research teams from different countries in the field of emerging substances.
Who should be part of the network?

All interested stakeholders dealing with emerging substances – whether in studying their occurrence and effects or risk assessment and risk management:

  • Competent authorities / Reference laboratories: i.e. institutes and organisations designated by the competent authorities at the national level to offer technical and scientific support in specific fields related to environmental protection.
  • Research centres and academia.
  • Industry stakeholders.
  • Government institutions and standardisation bodies.

Are you involved in research on the occurrence and environmental effects of emerging substances? Or are you concerned with the assessment and management of the risks associated with them? If so, you are a potential stakeholder in the NORMAN network.

If you are interested in this initiative, which has attracted a membership of more than 80 leading laboratories and authorities across Europe, North America and Asia, please contact:
