The aim of this review is to provide a summary of in-vitro tests that are currently in use for evaluating the ingestion bioaccessibility of selected metals and metalloids in contaminated soils. This report includes a brief outline of the methodologies, and a critical commentary on their robustness and validity for measuring bioaccessibility. The tests covered will only be for human/animal oral bioaccessibility (not phytoavailability) and the bioaccessibility of organic compounds is not covered.
