The complex multidisciplinary problem posed by PCDD can best be understood by the interaction of scientists from different disciplines. This workshop was organised to allow scientific exchange by such experts. The most recent advances in analytical methodology, environmental fate and levels, incineration toxicology (metabolism), animal toxicology and observations in man are covered
