Derivation of Taxonomic Screening Values


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Our background thinking…


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Our background thinking…

  • The use of generic screening values identifies the most exposed BUT is not necessarily the most at risk organism

  • Having taxonomic screening values could aid regulation


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Our background thinking…

  • The use of generic screening values identifies the most exposed BUT is not necessarily the most at risk organism

  • Having taxonomic screening values could aid regulation

  • Initially, thought to apply SSD approach to derive PNEDRs for each constituent grouping (e.g. vertebrates, plants, invertebrates)

  • Ideally, want all appropriate taxonomic groups


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Using data such as the UNSCEAR figure (already discussed) thought this might help determine groupings


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Using data such as the UNSCEAR figure (already discussed) thought this might help determine groupings

  • Accepting that this was an inappropriate endpoint, we initially proposed the following: Vertebrates, Invertebrates, Higher and Lower plants

  • BUT…


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Evaluation of available effects data for inclusion in SSD clearly showed that we could not derive numbers for all the planned groups using the TGD


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Evaluation of available effects data for inclusion in SSD clearly showed that we could not derive numbers for all the planned groups using the TGD

  • Note – it was felt that the most sensitive (vertebrates) might lead to PNEDR which was lower than generic screening value


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Evaluation of available effects data for inclusion in SSD clearly showed that we could not derive numbers for all the planned groups using the TGD

  • Note – it was felt that the most sensitive (vertebrates) might lead to PNEDR which was lower than generic screening value

  • If this proved to be the case, proposed to replace the generic screening value with the lowest PNEDR


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Sensitivity analysis of the limited data sets showed that only removing the vertebrates made any difference to the overall SSD

  • Key issue is the limited data sets for each taxonomic group


Taxonomic Screening Values

  • Sensitivity analysis of the limited data sets showed that only removing the vertebrates made any difference to the overall SSD

  • Key issue is the limited data sets for each taxonomic group

  • Is our CONCEPT for the derivation of the taxonomic screening values clear?
