Two factsheets have been produced by the Global Water Research Coalition (GWRC) that provide an overview of the key information on the use and interpretation of effect-based monitoring.

These documents were developed within the GWRC project Effect Based Monitoring in Water Safety Planning. This collaborative project between GWRC, KWR Water Research Institute, Veolia, Suez, UFZ and Griffith University addresses the implementation of in vitro bioassays for monitoring the effect of micropollutants in water and wastewater treatment installations at a global
scale, profiling experiences and case-studies from Europe, Australia, North America, Asia and South Africa.
