Refinements to the CROSERF protocols may be warranted for future toxicity testing of dispersants and dispersed oil, either to address specific concerns with the current test procedures (as highlighted below) or to provide greater site-specificity for risk assessment purposes (e.g., dispersant use in . These toxicity tests were conducted as part of an overall assessment of BP’s use of Corexit in response to the oil spill in the Gulf. These tests, coupled with EPA’s first round of dispersant tests show that dispersants are not distinguishable from one another based on the acute toxicity tests for sensitive aquatic organisms. Toxicity testing for ranking oils and dispersants, and toxicity testing for ecological predictions are reviewed, and the relationship between laboratory and field experiments is examined. View. Test Oils: The standard test oil, No. 2 Fuel Oil, was chosen for its known relative toxicity, ease of acquisition, and consistency of composition as compared with crude oils and other petroleum pro- ducts, and the ease of preparation for testing.

Under the Dumping at Sea Act the use of oil slick dispersants requres a licence from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in England and Wales. These licences are issued or refused on the basis of tests to assess the toxicity of the dispersant when used at sea or on by: Although it is generally well accepted that the drivers of aquatic toxicity in the water column following the use of new‐generation dispersants are the dissolved fractions of the treated oil (National Research Council ) and although recent laboratory studies have further demonstrated that dispersants are less toxic than the tested oils (e Cited by:
