||Alongside fate and exposure models, monitoring and laboratory data each have their specific roles to play in comprehensive risk assessments. The general principle concerning risk assessment data is that measured data should take precedence over model results but only after they are judged to be of adequate reliability. In practice, laboratory and field result data are used to provide parameters for the models, while monitoring data are used to validate the models' predictions. Comprehensive risk assessments therefore require the integration of laboratory and monitoring data with the model predictions. This report provides guidance on the general principles that should be adopted when planning a monitoring project, with particular reference to aquatic pollution risk assessment.
