In: Development of the TOXSWA model for predicting the behaviour of pesticides in surface water; proceedings of a workshop, held on November 8, 1994 at Wageningen, The Netherlands. Wageningen, SC-DLO, 1995. Report 105 / Crum, S.J.H., Deneer, J.W., - p. 67 - 77.
A tiered strategy is proposed for the use of TOXSWA in the registration procedure. For a quick scan of the potential environmental risk it is suggested that TOXSWA should be used in a standard setting of environmental conditions. Several standard settings, reflecting different Dutch situations, under which TOXSWA will be used will be identified. To enable a quick scan, it is intented to present TOXSWA in the form of tables. In case a more refined risk assessment is needed, the specific conditions have to be identified and implemented in the model. It is recommended that TOXSWA should be validated under various environmental conditions before it is used the model in the registration of pesticides.
