The chapter discusses the void in legal protection of the Baltic Sea from the combined effects of multiple chemicals. While individual chemicals are subject to detailed regulation at international and EU-level, combinations sometimes fall outside the scope of any rules. The article analyses to what extent EU laws consider potential combination effects of chemicals and how, which types of chemical exposure is considered and how combination effects of chemicals in the Baltic Sea could be regulated in the future.
