At the end of 2019 I attended a conference on Current Issues in Contaminated Land hosted by theRoyal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Brownfield Risk Assessment (SoBRA). The meeting consisted of high quality presentations on technical issues such as the toxicological approach to deriving the new Category 4 Screening Levels, benchmark dose modelling, latest approaches to ground gas risk assessment and breath analysis to assess exposure to chlorinated hydrocarbons.

The meeting marked the 10th anniversary of SoBRA, established in December 2009 to support professionals from the private, public and academic sectors working in land contamination risk assessment.
