SMOCS Guideline

The base for the guideline is the project “Sustainable Management of Contaminated Sediments in the Baltic Sea (SMOCS)”, within The Baltic Sea Region programme 2007-2013 (#039).

The guideline has a sustainability approach for management of contaminated sediments in dredging projects. It covers the whole process from identifying the need of dredging to the serviceability state after handling of the dredged sediments and give support to decisions to be made at different times throughout the whole process.

The guideline provides, improved comprehensive but simultaneously easy to use guidance starting from a description of “what to do” in the different phases during the whole process of a project and adds on with descriptions on “how to do” in the different phases and decision situations. This “how to do” is a tool-box comprising tools for assessment of sustainability and decision support tools. They are Appendixes marked in italics and linked to the chapters in the main document. In addition the guideline comprises a number of reports produced in the SMOCS project.
