Policy Area (PA) ‘Hazards’ focuses on reducing the use and impact of hazardous substances.

PA Hazards' actions concentrate on reducing the use and preventing emissions of hazardous substances by developing and implementing primarily non-regulatory measures and Baltic Sea Region-wide policies, as well as mitigating and remediating historic contamination still causing negative effect on the Baltic ecosystem. Also support to the implementation and compliance with EU regulations and international agreements related to hazardous substances, as well as support to the development of innovative and cost-effective management options are essential.

PA Hazards is coordinated by Sweden.
