There were significant correlations between levels of mercury in urine and the sampling areas at the mercury storage areas (r = 0.499, P < 0.049) and personal airborne samplings (r = 0.878, P < 0.001) (Figure 1).
There were significant correlations between urinary mercury levels and the environmental samplings that were conducted at the mercury storage areas and personal vapor samplings similar to the study by Ritchie et al.
The meeting touched on a number of topics, including the financial resources and providing the technical support, as well as mercury storage, waste and the contaminated sites, in addition to raising the awareness towards mercury and its risks.

Our findings are consistent with outdoor levels measured elsewhere ranging from several nanograms per cubic meter to 20 ng/[m.sup.3], with higher concentrations associated with urban/industrial areas and ambient mercury outside a mercury storage facility in Hillsborough, New Jersey, ranging from 2 to 8 ng/[m.sup.3] (ATSDR 1999; Gochfeld M, unpublished data; New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection 2001).
The NGOs have stressed that the EU needs to adapt the legislation rapidly, on one hand to allow industry sufficient time to prepare for the ban and to comply with the newrequirements on mercury storage and on the other hand because of the number of important international meetings on this subject, which are to take place over the next six months.

Support for this notion comes from animal evidence (37) that DMSA draws mercury with special avidity from the kidneys--an important mercury storage site known to have a relatively slow turnover (38).
They also urge the introduction of a tracking system to monitor the import, export and intra-EU transport of metallic mercury and its compounds, along with a review of ways in which the scope of the ban and mercury storage can be extended, ahead of the effective export ban deadline.
