Abstract

The present standard methods for the determination of mineral oil in environmental matrices give a total concentration. This concentration is not found to be a good estimate for ecotoxicological, human and agricultural risks. It is shown that the existing ISO standards for mineral oil and volatile compounds can be further developed to more risk based methods. This report is written to stimulate the discussion on the development of risk-based analytical procedures.
