Frequently Asked Question - Why does the Code of Practice make no distinction between contaminated and uncontaminated material?

Why does the Code of Practice make no distinction between contaminated and uncontaminated material?

The need to distinguish between “contaminated” and “uncontaminated” soils is no longer considered necessary. These are self-defining terms on a site specific basis having regard to the risk assessment, e.g. some soil may not be considered contaminated for a given land use, but would be for a more sensitive land use, on the same site.
