In this talk I explore how to advance molecular methods from tools in the research domain to routine use in national biomonitoring. I outline the necessity of common guidance, networks, international pilot studies and cooperation with officials to achieve the goal of method uptake into routine use. Lastly, I will explain the role that international method standardization plays in speeding up the uptake process of molecular methods into routine biomonitoring.
