Long description: The CLEA 2002 software was designed to conduct generic risk assessment, for a limited number of contaminants, where human activity patterns and contaminant characteristics conform to a set of broadly drawn general scenarios. We have recognised the benefit of providing practitioners with a more powerful tool able to derive site-specific assessment criteria for those cases where the conceptual model for a site does not fit that of the generic scenario. In addition, the approach to deriving Soil Guideline Values had been updated since the release of CLEA 2002 as discussed in CLEA Briefing Notes 1, 2 3 and 4. We are now issuing a publicly available version of the CLEA software that incorporates these updates. Our new software ‘CLEA UK’ will allow practitioners to derive generic assessment criteria, derive site-specific assessment criteria and calculate average daily exposure/health criteria ratios using a methodology that is consistent with current government policy on contaminated land. Additionally, assessment criteria can be derived for contaminants for which no government approved Health Criteria Values or Soil Guideline Values are available.
