Guidance on reporting summary information on environmental, occupational and consumer exposure
This Guidance Document is addressed to those who are involved in risk assessment and management of chemicals called POPs (Persistant Organic Pollutants) or PBTs (Persistant and bio-accumulating toxics). It is about using mulimedia models, i.e. generic evaluative models that can calculate overall environmental persistence and potential for long-range transport coveing muliple comparments such as air, water, sediment and soil: what
