Document Type: Monograph
This draft protocol describes the procedures for identifying complex and variable effluents which are appropriate for toxicity-based control and deriving toxicity-based consents. The philosophy underlying the use of toxicity-based consents (or direct toxicity assessment) for effluents and its overall role in the discharge consenting procedure has been given in an accompanying report (Johnson et al 1992). The draft protocol is intended to describe the procedures which will need to be implemented on a national basis. This will ensure there is a consistent approach which is acceptable to regulators, dischargers and the public.
