Abstract: Different pieces of legislation worldwide, and particularly the European Registration Evaluation Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) program, which entered into force on 1st June 2007, create an increased demand for more reliable information about different toxicological and fate properties, including bioaccumulation. Bioaccumulation has been the focus of dedicated Working Groups to develop guidance for the endpoint under the umbrella of the REACH Implementation Projects (RIP 3.3), and for overall PBT assessment of chemicals (RIP 3.2). The SETAC Advisory Group on Bioaccumulation Assessment (B-SAG) has a proven record of stimulating the incorporation of sound science within regulatory contexts by providing excellent forums for exchange of information and collaboration between scientists from government, industry and academia, and for creating a friendly environment where novel research and young scientists find warm welcome. For the 17th Annual Meeting, the B-SAG organised two oral sessions and two poster corners, which attracted ~60 abstracts and considerable attention at the meeting. The sessions were logically organised around the main themes of in vitro/modelling approaches and lab/field studies, and gave a forum to presenters from two continents, equally eager to share experience and move the science forward. Here we share top lines from the platform presentations.
