Short description: PROMOTE is a European project developing verification approaches for contaminated land technologies. Through the European Standards body CEN it has set up a platform to find a common approach cross Europe. CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) 32 provides guidelines for the verification of specific products for site characterization, monitoring and remediation of soil and groundwater systems, as long as no European ETV system is in place. In particular, it specifies a reporting structure for verified vendor claims of products in these three technology areas. This CWA describes a procedure which will result in a report that contains verified elements. The report in turn provides a standardized set of key information about a specific technology undergoing the procedure. The report aims to illustrate the performance of the technology and can therefore be used to help all stakeholders in their decision making, i. e. to evaluate if a particular technology is suitable for the site specific pollutant(s) and conditions of a soil and groundwater system. (CWA 32)
