The Environmental Toxicology Section was established in 1982. The section's objective is to promote scientific research and education in environmental toxicology. In addition, it is committed to promoting the application of environmental toxicology research for the preservation and improvement of the quality of the environment. Together with its members symposia and workshops are organized in order to achieve this objective. The section follows activities of international organizations such as SETAC and SECOTOX closely, and contributes as necessary to these (sub) activities. Since 2006 the board meets operates with the board of the Environmental Chemistry Section of the Royal Dutch Chemical Society (KNCV). This cooperation suits extremely well and will therefore be continued. These two boards can thus be seen as a single board. The board is always open to suggestions from its members for topics for workshops, excursions, seminars, symposia.
