A public consultation was carried out on the twenty substances listed below, which were assessed in accordance with the methodology for determining hazardous substances for the purposes of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Groundwater Daughter Directive (GWDD), and as required under legislation that
transposes these requirements into domestic legislation in the UK and Ireland.
This consultation was open February - March 2013.
The determination methodology used was published in 2012 after consultation in the summer of 2011.
The consultation amounted to a practical trial of the determination methodology, the results of which are summarised in the consultation response document. In view of the concerns raised in the consultation, revisions were made to the methodology that were consulted on in 2016. More details are here.
