This project seeks to explore opportunities to improve weight-of-evidence approaches in persistence assessment by incorporating the latest scientific developments in bioavailability, complex substances and overall persistence. A main focus of the project will be to improve guidance for substances outside the applicability domain of existing frameworks, such as UVCBs and polymers. The overall aim of the project is to offer practical guidance that will improve robustness, consistency and predictability of persistence assessments in chemical regulation.
