From 14-15 November 2019, NICOLE’s Fall Workshop will be held in Warsaw, Poland.
The topic of the workshop will be
Risk Assessment – European Policy and Best Practice Application.
The NICOLE network promotes the concepts of risk-based specific and cost-effective sustainable land management. This workshop will explore the current status of risk assessment policies and best practice applications across Europe, identifying cutting edge innovation, showcasing practical case studies and asking how we ensure risk assessor competence.
The host country for the workshop, Poland, has recently introduced risk-based legislation. This presents an ideal opportunity for the network to reflect on the current status of risk assessment policy across Europe.
- Are risk-based policies becoming more or less common?
- How does this sit alongside the objectives of the EU directives that are relevant to soil and groundwater contamination?
- Do we have examples of progressive risk assessment policy approaches being applied?
