This report presents environmental risk limits (ERLs) for antimony in (ground)water, sediment, and soil. ERLs are advisory values that serve as a scientific background to set environmental quality standards in the Netherlands. The ERLs for antimony are based on the results of the European risk assessment for antimony, which was prepared under the former Existing Substances Regulation 793/93/EEC. The derivation of ERLs is in accordance with the methodology of the Water Framework Directive. Based on a comparison with Dutch monitoring data, it is expected that the newly derived ERLs will be exceeded in very few cases.
