  1. Learn what’s new in CLEA V1.071

    The CLEA v.1.071 software was released by the Environment Agency on the 4th September 2015. As well as all the features of the previous V1.06, which was based on the human health risk assessment guidance contained in SR2 and SR3, this latest version also incorporates alternative guidance contained in the output from DEFRA research project SP1010. This greatly increases the range of possible input assumptions that can be used to derive generic and site specific assessment criteria using the latest version of the model.

    Our newly updated “Getting to know CLEA v1.071: a hands on introduction” course will be held on the 12th January 2016 and is designed to help you understand the changes in the new version whether you are a consultant running the model or a regulator trying to understand the outputs. So come and join us if you need to know more about what the model can and can’t do and what you need to know before you believe the values output by the model!
