The VOCs Handbook. Investigating, assessing and managing risks from inhalation of VOCs at land affected by contamination (C682)

This publication provides clear and flexible guidance on the investigation, assessment and management of risks associated with Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) at land affected by contamination in the UK, primarily relating to inhalation by people.

The VOCs handbook has been prepared to be consistent with existing UK regulatory guidance on land contamination and is also intended to compliment the guidance released by CIRIA in 2007, Assessing risks posed by hazardous ground gases (C665).

Keywords: contaminated land, environmental good practice, ground investigation and characterisation, vapour intrusion, vapour migration, risk assessment, soil gas

Learning and business networking opportunities
CIRIA manage two specialist training networks for contaminated land professionals: LACL (for local authorities) and the Brownfield Risk Management Forum (BRMF).
