Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are commonly found on land affected by contamination in the UK, at concentrations that result in the need for remediation and risk mitigation measures to be carried out to manage the potential risks to people.

This publication is intended to provide clear and flexible guidance specific to management of VOC vapours, primarily relating to inhalation by people.

A wide range of different source treatment/management, pathway management and receptor management solutions are outlined, including a description of techniques and their relative advantages and disadvantages. This guide focuses on the importance of ensuring remediation or risk mitigation works are appropriately verified, in-line with existing guidance, and includes a simple checklist that can be used to assist this process.
