The WHO risk assessment concept ("Water Safety Plans") has been adapted by many countries in legislative requirements and technical regulations and implemented for various water reuse applications. This concept therefore forms the basis of risk management for applications within the WavE funding measure.
In order to convey the most important aspects of risk management during water reuse in a compact manner, the working group on the cross-cutting topic 'risk management' agreed to draw up short fact sheets. The thematic focus is on a.) microbiological parameters, b.) chemicals (such as organic matter, nutrients, salts and heavy metals), c.) contaminants of emerging concern and d.) an illustration of the essential elements of an overall water recycling concept.
