57th session of Working Group on Evaluation of Harmful Substances to be held by correspondence from 4 to 8 May 2020

Due to COVID-19 and its impact on meetings at the IMO Headquarters, GESAMP/EHS 57 will now be conducted by correspondence from 4 to 8 May. During this session, the Group will assess 18 new substances and assign GESAMP Hazard Profiles to them. We plan to have all assessments made by 8th May and will have a Skype meeting in order to summarize the meeting after the assessments are made. The report will be finalized straight after the meeting and will be made available on the website under http://www.gesamp.org/work/groups/1/sessions-reports
