Emission Scenario Document on Antifouling Products

This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) describes emission scenarios for three parts of the life cycle for antifouling products used on ship and boat hulls: (1) application; (2) service life; and (3) removal.

The primary aim of this ESD is for use in risk assessments in notification and authorisation procedures in regulatory frameworks used in OECD countries. The ESD is intended to be used for general risk assessment and is explicitly not for site specific risk assessments. Furthermore it is important to note that the recommended scenarios for service life of the antifouling products in the ESD are limited to the calculation of the initial local concentrations in the primary receiving environmental compartments.
