This project will provide a basis for DEFRA's future research on dioxins and PCBs by reviewing and evaluating current research and proposals for research in this area. A proiority list for research will be produced based on the policy relevance of the different areas of research, the significance of information gaps and their likely cost effectiveness in helping to meet the Government objective of reduced emissions and exposure.
