RIVM supports the WHO with the GEMS/Food programme. This Global Environment Monitoring System - Food Contamination Monitoring and Assessment Programme - collects data and develops advice for governments, organisations and Codex Comitees with regard to levels of contaminants in food, trends therein, contribution to the total human exposure and relevance for public health and trade. The WHO CC Chemical Food Safety was designated to RIVM in May 2013 for a period of 4 years.
The European Multiple Environmental Threats Emergency Network (EMETNET) project serves to support the European Commission by providing a rapid risk assessment (RRA) methodology and network of experts to assess the risks and associated impacts of emerging environmental threats.
RIVM is among the top 4 of institutes in the area of environment and health research that collaborate most frequently in EU projects, as was demonstrated by a 2017 study for the European Commission. Our experts and researchers are involved in a wide range of international projects. On this page we present an overview of these projects.
