||One of the key challenges of the proposed European chemicals legislation (REACH) is that it envisages the registration and evaluation of approximately 30,000 chemicals by producers and importers over the next 10-15 years. Faced with such a challenge, both practically and scientifically, appropriate prioritization will be a key element of the REACH process. To facilitate such work, ECETOC has developed a step-wise approach for identifying and prioritizing scenarios where risks to human health and the environment from chemicals might reasonably be expected to be high enough to undertake a more detailed assessment of risk. The concept applies an iterative approach in which the potential risks of a chemical are based on the consideration of both hazards and exposures.
