The Environment Agency has decided to withdraw the Soil Guideline Value (SGV) for mercury and the supporting reports following discussions with Public Health
England (PHE) about a revised opinion from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). EFSA recommended an oral TDI for both these forms of mercury that are lower
than the oral HCV used in the derivation of the SGV.
