Additional information

In attachment a iron position paper (position paper Iron.pdf) gives more detail why PNEC is not required and cannot technically be calculated. The WCA report (WCA - Iron Chemistry Environment Freshwater Background Report.pdf) on the environmental chemistry of iron provides a comprehensive review of the effects and behaviour of iron in the aqueous environment. The other documents attached provide information on exposure based waiving of iron in soil and sediment (White paper on exposure based waiving for Fe and Al in soils and sediments final 15-03-2010.pdf), exposure assessment of iron in surface waters (Exposure assessment of iron in surface water final report 10-03-2010.pdf) and waiving of secondary poisoning for iron (White paper on waiving for secondary poisoning for Al & Fe compounds final report 02-02-2010.doc).
