Short description: Describes a UK framework for the collation of toxicological data to support the derivation of soil contaminant intakes that are protective of human health 
Long description: This report describes a framework for the collation of toxicological data to support the derivation of soil intakes that are protective of human health. It has been developed by DEFRA and the Environment Agency, based upon work by a number of contractors. This involves assessing the potential harm to human health from contaminants in soil and using this information for deriving health criteria. Tolerable Daily Intakes and minimal risk levels (index doses) are derived for threshold and non-threshold contaminants respectively.
