The SETAC Europe Certification of Environmental Risk Assessor (CRA) programme was developed to harmonise and further strengthen the use of -up-to-date scientific methods and principles in the environmental risk assessment of chemicals and other stressors. We believe that environmental risk assessment professionals should share the same high standards and broad understanding of risk assessment principles to ensure the safe use of chemicals and the protection of the environment.

Applicants need to fulfil the knowledge and experiences expected from a certified expert, which consists of a broad basic knowledge in all 9 CRA topics, advanced knowledge and specialisation, continued professional development and on-the-job experience before passing the final oral examination.

Basic knowledge in all 9 CRA topics proven by passing the multiple-choice examination

Risk assessment is not a one person job and it is important that everyone understands the basic principles. Those do not depend on country or specific legislations. The 9 topics identified vary from “ecological concepts” over “environmental chemistry” to “ecotoxicology” and “statistics”.

The exam consists of multiple-choice questions covering all 9 CRA topics and the candidates have 2 hours to complete the test. With this multiple-choice examination, a successful participant can show that they fulfil the necessary basic knowledge and competences in all 9 CRA topics!

You are not sure if you have the broad knowledge in the CRA topics? You want to find out about your strengths and where to fill some gaps? No problem. If failing participants can repeat the examination once without additional costs.


  • The multiple-choice examination will take place on Monday, 27 May from 9:00 until 11:00
  • Meeting Room 216
