The UK Recovery Handbook for Chemical Incidents (UKRHCI) is a guidance document specifically designed to aid decisions in managing the recovery phase of a chemical incident where contamination has affected food production systems, inhabited areas and water environments.
The UKRHCI is intended for use by recovery coordination groups (RCGs) and other stakeholders to reduce or eliminate exposure and subsequent public health risks from environmental contamination following a chemical incident.
