Spanish Royal Decree for the statement of polluted soils

Real Decreto 9/2005 (B.O.E nº15, 18 of January, 2005)

The criteria to declare a site as polluted, as well as the possible restoration measures, are based on the potential unacceptable risks associated to the presence of contaminants.

(Regulation (CE) nº 1488/94 and Regulation (CEE) nº 793/93).

  • Human Health

  • Environment

JRC Meeting, 3-4 February, 2005


Who has to present a declaration?

  • * The land owner of an potential polluting activity (Annex I).

  • * Those companies:

    • which produce, use or storage hazardous substances (> 10 tn/year)

    • average store of combustibles of 50.000 l and

    • average consumption of combustible > 300.000 l

  • Requested information:

  • General information about the activity

  • Hazardous substances used

  • Hazardous sub-products generated

  • Hazardous by-products generated

  • Storage

  • Existence of mechanisms/structures to preclude soil pollution

  • Historical uses/activities supported by the site

JRC Meeting, 3-4 February, 2005

JRC Meeting, 3-4 February, 2005


HH CRITERIA

NON-CONTAMINATED SOILS

  • Risk Assessment: acceptable risks for the Human Health

  • Priority in Human Health protection: below the Generic values (I,R,AU)

Identification and definition of:

Exposure routes

Characteristics of the most sensitive target individuals

Maximum Tolerable Concentrations (MTC)

carcinogenic substances: frequency 10-5

systemic substances: ratio: long-term exposure/MTC

0.05 pesticides

0.2 organochlorinated substances

0.05 PAHs

0.1 MAHs

Soil Uses:

Industrial (I)

Residential (R)

Any use (AU)

JRC Meeting, 3-4 February, 2005


ENV. CRITERIA

NON-CONTAMINATED SOILS

  • Risk Assessment: acceptable risks for the Environment

  • Priority in Environmental protection: below the Generic values (EU approach)

JRC Meeting, 3-4 February, 2005


HH / ENV. CRITERIA

CONTAMINATED SOILS

  • Risk Assessment: Unacceptable risks for HH and/or Env

  • Priority in HH protection: if soil concentration > 100 * Generic values (I,R,AU)

  • Priority in Environmental protection:

If E(L)C50, for most sensitive

organism, is lower than

10mg of sampled soil/g soil test

If E(L)C50, for most sensitive

organism, is lower than

10 mg of leacheate/l medium test

JRC Meeting, 3-4 February, 2005


When is required a risk assessment?

If the concentration of hydrocarbons in soil is higher than 50 mg/L

If concentrations of any substance in soil is higher than the Generic Values.

Regulation (CE) nº 1488/94 and Regulation (CEE) nº 793/93.

  • Requirements for the Environmental Risk Assessment:

    • Description of the sources of pollution

    • Description of soil characteristics

    • Identification of the potential target receptors

    • Environmental exposure and routes of

    • Risk characterization

    • Analysis of uncertainties
