Usage Considerations

This Standard is not a stand-alone document and does not provide specific guidance on site characterization methods for conducting an ESA. It is up to the professional and the site owner or operator who are responsible for the project to ensure adequate documented quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) protocols are in place so that the conceptual site model (CSM), data collection, and the final report represent an accurate reflection of the risks associated with contaminants of potential concern (CoPCs) that might be present at the site. Further guidance may be found in Guidance Manual for Environmental Site Characterization in Support of Environmental and Human Health Risk Assessment (CCME, 2016), or Federal Contaminated Site Risk Assessment in Canada, Part 1: Guidance on Human Health Preliminary Quantitative Risk Assessment (PQRA), Version 2.0 (Health Canada, 20 12).
