The technical framework of our TOX guidance report (Final SC050021/SR2) and CLEA report (Final SC050021/SR3) is complete and the approach is consistent with that agreed by Defra and the other government agencies.
We want to make our guidance easy to use and have taken into account comments received on these reports during a three-month evaluation period. You can download a summary of the amendments made to the CLEA framework reports from the link below.
