Category 4 Screening Levels (C4SL) Project Phase 2

SAGTA is providing the project lead and central coordination to the next phase of C4SL development. Joined by SoBRA, in committing funds to resourcing the project, current plans are to consider a further 20 substances.

A number of preliminary preparatory projects have been instigated including the assessment of priority substances for consideration.

Moves are also in advanced stages to invite and appoint a Project Manager for the initiative together with invitations to toxicologists to participate in a Panel of appointees.

Project Steering Group

Following its initial announcement of its intention to take a lead in taking forward the next phase of C4SL development, SAGTA has recently reactivated invitations to representatives from the contaminated land sector to reform its Steering Group to oversee progress on the initiative.
Hannah White from National Grid Property will act as the Steering Group’s Deputy Chairman.
