Short description: This practitioner guide deals with PFOS and PFOA given their known physical and chemical properties, toxicity, and behaviour, fate and transport in the environment. These factors are considered in terms of their relevance to risk-based site contamination. The guide also provides an overview of the application of Australian approaches, which in turn provides the background for site-specific risk assessments, as well as the basis for the development and application of screening levels. It is a technical resource for the application of risk-based approaches to the assessment, remediation and management of PFAS site contamination.
