Short description: The EMPODAT database consists of two inter-linked modules: The Chemistry module for monitoring/occurrence data on emerging substances which are already known to be present in the environment but which are not yet included in routine monitoring programmes. The Bio-monitoring module for data obtained from bio-monitoring approaches, i.e., biological effects measured by bio-assays and biomarkers in different environmental matrices. EMPODAT is designed to allow: Access to the latest information on emerging pollutants, with an overview of benchmark values on the occurrence of emerging substances across Europe; Identification of gaps in data relating to time, geographical areas and/or environmental matrices. How to submit the data The web application allowing for on-line upload of data via Internet will be ready in March 2007.
