Specific objectives

50443Develop and test a Toxidrome Matrix IT tool for the RAS-CHEM platform to improve the sensitivity of the system for the early detection and identification of chemical health threats.

Produce Chemical Emergency Medical Management (CEMM) sheets for the treatment and management of chemical casualties; incorporate these into the RAS-CHEM platform.

Determine if automated PC data mining can enable Member States to comply with EU Biocide and Pesticide Directives.

Develop a robust mechanism to monitor toxicological data to increase global health awareness. This will include evaluating the feasibility of establishing a ‘network of experts’ to monitor toxicological data reported to RAS-CHEM and produce CEMM sheets to emerging health threats.

Expected Outcomes

ambulanceThe project will enhance risk communication, hazard identification & risk management for chemical health threats. The project outputs will aid the European Commission and Member States (MS) to better coordinate the response to major cross-border chemical health threats. The project may also enable EU MS to meet reporting requirements for EU Biocide and Pesticide Directives.



Work Packages


Work-package 1: Coordination (Lead PHE). PHE will lead on the project co-ordination, including technical management of the project, to ensure milestones and deliverables are met on time and manage the contractual and financial administration of the contract on behalf of the European Commission.

Work-package 2: Dissemination (Lead HESC, LT). A project dissemination working group will act to promote awareness in MS authorities, professional interest groups, social groups and political spheres both inside and outside of the EU.
