RIVM

The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) has an important response function in the fields of Infectious disease control, environmental control and CBRN incidents and disasters. In the fields of response and resilience against CBR agents, RIVM’s remit is to modernize, gather, generate and integrate knowledge and make it usable in the public domain. The RIVM has a long history in onsite assessment of environmental incidents. When large-scale CBRN incidents occur, the RIVM can provide onsite sampling teams, onsite mobile laboratories (C, B and R) and back office teams to assess local situations.
