Federal Environmental Quality Guidelines (FEQGs)
July 13, 2020 - Canada
As per Environment and Climate Change Canada (2020),
"Federal Environmental Quality Guidelines (FEQGs) are recommendations in quantitative or qualitative terms to support federal environmental quality monitoring. FEQGs are set at a concentration so that where the concentration of a given chemical is at or below the FEQG, there is low likelihood of direct adverse effects from the chemical on aquatic life exposed via the water or sediment, or where chemicals may bioaccumulate, in wildlife (birds and mammals) that consume aquatic life. FEQGs do not generally address cumulative exposures or additive effects with other chemicals. As a result, more stringent targets may be useful for certain substances, for example in the risk management phase. FEQGs are based on the toxicological effects, that is, the hazard of specific chemical substances or groups of substances.
The use of FEQGs is voluntary unless prescribed by regulation or binding agreements. Though they may be applied as intermediate values in calculations, FEQGs are neither effluent limits, nor are they "never-to-be-exceeded" values."
