Description: The main intention of this report is to present the way of evaluation of BWMS as it has evolved during the last ten years. This methodology is based on internationally accepted methods of risk assessment as they are practised in several countries and regions worldwide. Methods and assumptions come from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the European Union, mainly the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for the evaluation of chemicals and biocides, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and are used in decision support systems in these organizations. The GESAMP-BWWG is accountable for its interpretation of these methods. Another aim of this publication is to present this risk assessment approach to the scientific community in order to evoke criticism and therefore improve the methodology. The evaluation of BWMS deserves a scientifically justifiable way to approve systems, thereby fulfilling the aim of protecting the environment, human health, property and resources.
