La gestion des risques liés à la pollution médicamenteuse

Abstract : This thesis deals with the legal management of risks related to drug pollution. Nowadays, scientific studies indicate the emergence of drug residues in our environment. Nevertheless, uncertainties remain regarding the actual risks of these residues on the human health and on the environment. Given this observation, current policy makes use of the precautionary principle in order to control this emerging pollutant, but these measures are in the making. In light of the above, this work leads to a review of the legal tools that can be used to manage risks throughout the life cycle of the drug, from the its creation’s molecule to its pseudo-elimination by treatment plants. More precisely, the demonstration attempts to retrace the recent awareness of drug pollution by environmental policy. In a first step, we highlight the emergence of a new risk generated by the drug and its impact on public health policy. In a second phase, we analyze the preventive measures that have been recently undertaken by the government. the lack of a legal understanding concerning the environmental impact generated by drug residues will be mentioned. First, gaps in the regulations governing the medicinal product as a pollutant are identified. Then, regulatory deficiencies for drug-generating activities are being addressed.
