Dose-Response Roadmaps (DRR) Briefings

The LQM/CIEH Dose Response Roadmaps are a tool to assist local authorities and their advisors to determine whether a “significant possibility of significant harm” (SPOSH) is likely to exist as defined in Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act, 1990. The Roadmaps are available under license.

These webinars are for delegates from licensed and non-licensed organisations wishing to better understand what the Roadmaps are, how they can be used and how they support decisions under Part 2A.

These webinars also form part of the DRR Registration Course.
