Abstract: This report describes the technical support provided to identify and prioritize among relevant compounds that have to be considered in European regulation dealing with Sewage Sludge. The work includes the results of a screening of typical European situations of sewage sludges with regard to the occurrence and levels of compounds of concern, many of which never assessed in a pan-European dimension. In total, 63 samples originating from 15 countries, were assessed for 22 minor and trace elements and 92 organic compounds including ingredients of personal care products and pharmaceuticals. Obtained results are assessed statistically and where possible compared to other findings. Background information from literature describing the situation before the survey is included. To assess the availability of selected persistent organic pollutants, findings of along-term case study are included, too.
