The paper deals with the issue of analysis and assessment of the socio-economic impacts of environmental pollution by the hazardous chemicals. Special emphasis was placed on the effects of pollution from specific groups of dangerous chemicals known as persistent organic pollutants, e.g. POPs chemicals. The characteristics of POPs, including persistence, bioaccumulation and high toxicity, are making the environmental impacts of these chemicals particularly complex and dangerous. The process of socio-economic analysis of hazardous chemicals impacts includes identifying anthropogenic activities which include dangerous chemicals; analysis their adverse effects on the environment and assessing their impacts. Number of methods and indicators for measuring of those impacts are developed in order to quantify and when possible monetize them.
