JRC has recently reviewed the regulatory requirements and guidance surrounding the toxicity assessment of chemical mixtures, both of known (e.g. food or cosmetic mixtures) and unknown composition (e.g. environmental samples). The report gives an overview of the current legislation in force, and the various approaches to evaluating chemical mixtures.
