Characterization of waste - Guidance on the use of ecotoxicity tests applied to waste

Ecotoxicity tests can be applied to wastes to identify their potential hazardous properties with respect to the environment or to assess the risk related to a site-specific exposure scenario. This document provides guidance for the selection and use of ecotoxicity tests for both applications. This document focuses on the following selected field of applications: a) Basic ecotoxicological characterization; b) Site-specific exposure scenario; c) Landfill management: 1) monitoring of leachates; 2) mineral waste going to non-controlled landfill sites.
