Many regulatory systems, including the European Community Regulation on the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH), require the thorough consideration of hazard and risk. The extent of risk characterisation and assessment required will be proportional to both hazard and exposure. The general principles for assessing the risks of substances are given in REACH. Hazards must be identified and then risks assessed. Where appropriate, risk management measures should be introduced.
