New emission scenarios available for risk assessment of biocides

Two new emission scenario documents and one related document for biocides have been published:

  • Emission scenarios for repellents and attractants (product type 19);
  • Refinement of the emission scenarios for working or cutting fluid preservatives (product type 13);
  • Environmental assessment of biocides applied in the offshore oil exploration industry (product types 11 and 12).

These documents should be used to estimate the release of substances from biocidal products to the environment in the frame of an environmental exposure assessment. These new documents are available at: Emission scenario documents
