Any physical, chemical, biological, or radiological substance
or matter that is in, on or under the land and that has the potential
to cause harm to human health or the environment.
The French policy for detecting and analysing pollutants
in contaminated land is a key component of the general policy
for risk assessment and site management.
Rather than being a normative approach, it is based on
the use of activity-sector-specific matrices for detection
strategies, and state-of-the art analytical methods.
