Know the quality of your soil or aquatic sediment

Clarifying the risks


This report presents an overview of the underpinning of all the standards and assessment systems for the chemical quality of the soil, aquatic sediment, excavated soil and dredged material. These are the standards in the Decree and Regulation on Soil Quality, the 2006 Circular on soil remediation and the 2007 Circular on aquatic sediment remediation. Never before has such a complete overview been presented. It can be regarded as a milestone on the way towards a clear and consistent set of standards for the soil and aquatic sediment.
