Two enHealth guidance documents walked into a bar…..

 The ACLCA Risk Assessment sub-committee will discuss two (relatively) recent enHealth guidance statements:

  • Guidance for the human health risk assessment of volatile chlorinated hydrocarbon vapour intrusion (December 2023)
  • Per-and Polyfluoralkyl Substances (PFAS) (February 2024)

Topics covered will include:

  • What’s new in these documents for contaminated land consultants?
  • For PFAS, how does the current Australian guidance compare to recently updated international (e.g., US) guidelines and why are they different?
  • For chlorinated hydrocarbons, how does the new enHealth guidance compare to ASC NEPM guidance and the Interim HILs, and how and where would you use them?

Come along and bring your questions!
