Good resource!

	The aim of the activities of the NORMAN network is to enhance
the exchange of information on emerging
environmental substances, and to encourage 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.
The NORMAN newsletter is for everyone interested in emerging substances
in the environment. This newsletter keeps you up to date on scientific
advances in this area and highlights the activities and events of the EU
NORMAN Network.
