The Association of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS) is a long established trade association which represents the interests of over 100 companies (consultants, contractors and laboratories) involved in the investigation and assessment of land. The objectives of the Association include a commitment to improve the quality of geoenvironmental engineering. Accordingly, the AGS has been closely involved in the process to bring forward a new generation of Soil Guideline Values for the assistance of regulators and practitioners in the field of land contamination and remediation. The AGS was an active member of the SGV Taskforce in 2005 and 2006 and has established a group of interested members who have and will continue to monitor and inform the Way Forward process.
AGS members have considered the documents provided at November’s meeting and are pleased to forward the following response which we trust will be given due regard in the consultation process.
