The possibilities are studied for development of an indicator Itox, which indicates the impact of toxic compounds on ecosystem health on a regional scale. Itox can be used as an alternative Environmental Policy Performance Indicator for the theme of Dispersion (EPPI-D) with respect to the environmental quality. In future, global Itox-values may also be applicable within the Global Environmental Outlooks. Based on the results of the present definition study, a plan of approach is proposed which enables calculation of an annual indicator values, e.g. Itox-1996.
