Título De minimis considerations in health risk assessment
Información bibliográfica May 1987, Vol.15, No.1-2, p.77-95. 14 ref.
Resumen Absence of statutory guidance for determining "de minimis" threshold levels of risk which do not merit regulatory efforts has been identified as a critical regulatory problem by many, including recently the US Supreme Court. The development of a formal de minimis approach requires resolution of several legal and technical issues. Conceptual and legal rationales for a de minimis policy to determine plausible risk bounds for chronic health risks are presented. A conceptual framework for adopting generic de minimis policies is also developed. The findings suggest that there are several opportunities for applying this concept under existing statutory mandates.
