  • Promote a better knowledge of contact dermatitis
  • Improve the study of contact dermatitis in Europe, and elsewhere
  • Improve the lives of our patients
  • Reduce the impact of occupational risks on skin health
  • Collaborate with authorities and industry in the prevention of contact allergy
  • Promote our speciality to Dermatologists and the public.
