Because of the uncertainties involved, the fact that different suites of contaminants affect different groups of targets, it is in no way surprising to find that the allowable concentrations of soil contaminants vary to a real extent in the different national listings. For example, the concentration of cadmium, above which the soil which contains this metal is deemed to be contaminated, varies (for land to be used for crop production) from 1mg/kg to 50mg/kg, in different national listings [10].

Others would primarily affect future users of the site and could lead to these individuals seeking legal redress for any damages for nuisances suffered. 7) on the future well-being of the selected targets has to be assessed. Ideally such assessments should be conducted before any reclamation is undertaken (when they usefully indicate which risks are of the greatest significance in the context of a particular site and its planned re-use), and after reclamation has been completed, to ensure that the reclamation work has satisfactorily achieved the necessary freedom from future risks.

Additionally proof-testing gives reclamation practitioners the information to design future reclamations more effectively, and to predict possible failures at any early stage. In the UK’s policy, trigger concentrations are not substitutes for soil quality standards and must not be used as such. Vastly greater amounts of scientific evidence will have to established before any nation poses such defensible quality standards, and even should these be established the applicability of standards against site-specific factors will inevitably have to be considered.
