Science to support regulatory activity

Globally, most health-relevant regulations pertaining to the environment, consumer products, pharmaceutical and medical device authorizations, and occupational exposures are developed based on multiple streams of scientific evidence, including epidemiological and toxicological studies. Collectively, data from such studies provide results to support causal inferences about the potential associations between health effects and various exposures.

Risk assessment approaches are often used by regulatory and public health agencies around the world, both to integrate information from different disciplines to identify potential hazards and to support decision making around acceptable levels of exposure. Comprehensive systematic reviews that incorporate study quality assessments are becoming a standard tool in these risk assessments, which have increased in complexity and scientific rigor.  

Ramboll scientists have extensive experience in providing independent and rigorous evaluations of epidemiological and toxicological science and have been at the forefront of developing risk assessment methods, models and frameworks relevant to informing regulatory decisions. This mature perspective and expertise lead to a thorough understanding of both the available science and the latest research methods. 

We have the ability to apply both standard methods and cutting-edge techniques to estimate appropriately health-protective exposure limits, even for materials that have not yet been regulated. Our scientists have a thorough understanding of regulatory requirements on almost every continent and can build project teams with the necessary Ramboll experts in related areas to gain additional understanding and provide scientific support for any regulatory need.
