Marine Risk Assessments

Euro Chlor has completed 25 chlorine-based compounds focused on the marine environment. Data was collected and evaluated on the effects and environmental concentrations of these compounds. The 25 products appear on the lists of concern of European countries participating in the North Sea Conference.

Risk assessment methodology

For risk assessments on the 25 chlorine-based compounds, Euro Chlor has followed the EU guidelines (1488/94).

Important remarks

  • The data of the risk assessments was last reviewed in August 2008 and was valid at that time.
  • For nearly all of the assessed substances, more recent emissions data is available from Euro Chlor.
  • For all substances, the marine risk assessments remain valid to the best of our knowledge.
