As part of its core mission to disseminate information to concerned stakeholders, the Collegium regularly releases “Collegium Ramazzini Statements” on topics of particular interest. These statements are used as reference points for governments and international agencies as well as by physicians in occupational medicine. Statements reflect the official orientation of the Collegium on topics of major interest. They are adopted in full independence and are exclusively based on scientific knowledge and ethical principles. Statements of the Collegium Ramazzini are now published in the European Journal of Oncology, the American Journal of Industrial Medicine and from time-to time in other journals in the field. For example, the 1999 “Call for a Ban on All Uses of Asbestos” was published in 14 scientific journals worldwide and has had great influence.
