On August 19 and 20, 1976, a Workshop was held to review technical developments and to make recommendations on implementation of the National Environmental Specimen Bank. The Workshop consisted of a review session where past considerations were discussed; a technical session where recent analytical research relevant to the sample bank was abstracted and discussed; and a planning session where planning and design of a prototype banking system was outlined. The workshop concluded that with the ever increasing influx of new man-made substances into the ecosystem, that a formalized, systematic approach is needed to assess the environmental impact of these substances on a national as well as an international level. The technology to initiate a pilot banking program is presently available and was formulated into a five-year pilot bank program. This program will be evaluated at each stage of development.
