The quality of science for policy depends as much on the robustness of available scientific knowledge as it does on the procedural settings and working procedures in safety agencies. Using a report on Bisphenol A as a case study, and a set of original criteria, we provide an understanding of procedural influences on the results of scientific advisory committees and about literature reviews for chemical hazard characterization. Expert elicitation revealed that three aspects are critically importa...

Abstract This paper proposes a method for in-depth mapping of heterogeneity in expert judgment, in the evaluation of the quality of epidemiological studies used in regulatory chemical risk assessment. Whereas consensus in scientific advisory groups provides legitimation for subsequent political action, it can also have unintended effects on the quality of regulatory risk assessment. Based on empirical testing of our method, called Qualichem_epi, with ten experts and two epidemiological case stud...

The green chemistry (GC) concept originated in the United States during the 1990s to describe an approach to chemistry that aims to lower impacts on health and the environment. Based on 70 interviews with scientists from France and the United States, I investigated green chemists’ practices and motivations, and the socio-political influences on their attitudes to GC. The results show that GC has a hybrid character, bringing together scientists with different motivations (funding, career, communi...

Background Socioeconomic analysis is currently used in the Europe Union as part of the regulatory process in Regulation Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH), with the aim of assessing and managing risks from dangerous chemicals. The political impact of the socio-economic analysis is potentially high in the authorisation and restriction procedures, however, current socio-economic analysis dossiers submitted under REACH are very heterogeneous in terms of methodology used...

L’evaluation de la securite chimique (CSA) est une methode instauree par le reglement REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), appliquee pour les substances chimiques produites ou importees en Europe a plus de 10 tonnes par an. Dans un premier temps, les principes de cette methode et les similitudes avec les methodes d’evaluation quantitative des risques sanitaires (EQRS) et d’evaluation du risque chimique pratiquees dans d’autres contextes reglementaires (sa...
