||There is increasing recognition by regulators that there are limitations to the substance-specific approach for assessing and controlling the environmental fate and effects of effluents. Many regulators are seeking more holistic techniques such as whole effluent assessment to supplement existing approaches. This report provides an overview of whole effluent assessment approaches in terms of their applicability to existing regulation, the types of tests being considered (ecotoxicity tests, bioaccumulation, persistence, endocrine disruption and genetic toxicology) and how whole effluent assessment could be tailored to meet specific objectives. Case studies are also provided with recommendations made regarding the applicability of various whole effluent assessment approaches.
