Additional Soil Assessment Criteria
As well as the standard testing required for BS3882:2015/subsoils BS8601:2013 we also test to determine the levels of potential contaminants in relation to the topsoil end use. We have tested our soil against the residential end use listed Sustainable for Use Levels (S4UL’s) in the Land Quality Management / Chartered Institute for Environmental Health Human Health Risk Assessment 2015. We also take guidance of contaminants Suggested Guideline Values from:
- DEFRA sp1010 Cat 4 2014
- Dutch Action Value (DAV)
- BRE Special Digest 1:205 (BRE)
- Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012
Of the potential contaminates identified using the above guidance none of the results exceeded the guideline values. If there is site specific criteria we recommend independent testing and are happy to separately stockpile individual orders for separate testing to ensure consistency with site specific criteria.
