SETAC was established in 1979 and soon grew to be a global entity with geographic units in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America. Thus, SETAC became the global home to environmental professionals from around the world while meeting the needs of individual scientists at the local and regional levels. SETAC programs include publications (such as journals, fact sheets and books), workshops, webinars and an awards program, which are all supported by members and volunteers.

The affairs of the Society are managed by the Global Executive Director under oversight of the SETAC World Council as defined by the SETAC Bylaws. SETAC is incorporated in the US as a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization, EIN #52-1184315.
