Department of Environment (DoE) Industry Profiles (published in 1995) provide information on the processes, materials and waste associated with individual industries with regard to land contamination.

They are not definitive studies but they introduce some of the technical considerations that need to be borne in mind at the start of an investigation for possible contamination.

The 47 original publications in the series were originally scanned and created into PDF documents by Defra and are now available as free PDF downloads. The quality of the documents is poorer than normally provided, however their usefulness to the risk management process is such that it was still felt important to make them available.

The guiding principles documents are a package of guidance that replaced the ’Environment Agency requirements for land contamination reports’. They consist of:

The guiding principles are generic guidance. 

As explained in GPLC1, they cover some of the main areas of interaction with the Environment Agency, but it is also critical that you involve local authority officers in any project. Local authority contaminated land officers lead on most land contamination matters and will have their own requirements and guidance.
