Abstract Within the framework of agreements intended to improve how the CMR (carcinogens, mutagens and reprotoxic substances) risk is taken into account in the chemicals, paint manufacturing and mechanical engineering sectors, an inventory of the available chemical risk assessment methods was drawn up and a critical analysis was carried out. Seven of these methods, sufficiently similar so as to be comparable, were then applied to a test case designed to be representative of an enterprise of the chemicals and paint sectors. Findings are discussed.
