||When assessing the risks of chemicals to organisms in soils and sediments, the method for estimating the likely concentration and the potential for harm to the organisms need to be properly understood. This report identifies a number of key variables that require better definition in the current technical guidance document (TGD), especially as the risk assessment is refined and moves from the screening stage to the successive investigative phases. These include estimates of emissions, phase partitioning behaviour, bioavailability, test protocols, research topics and test strategies.
