The move for an Asia/Pacific unit of SETAC began in 1991, with the lead taken by Dr. Graeme Batley and Dr. Eun Namkung. SETAC Asia/Pacific was officially included as a geographic unit of SETAC in 1997. It currently comprises 600 members, representing academia, corporate, government, and research sectors.
The SETAC Asia/Pacific Board of Directors consists of up to 10 members with representation from at least 5 countries in the Asia/Pacific region, and preferably including representation from government, academia, and business, in keeping with the general aims of SETAC.
