Here a new system of assessment, REACH (registration, evaluation, authorization of chemicals), is suggested: depending on the tonnage and properties of the material, a registration, evaluation, and authorization process is conducted. A priority assessment is provided for chemicals available in quantities of more than 100 tons per year. The same goes for substances that are deemed to be dangerous on the grounds of their inherent properties (such as substances that can alter the genome, very toxic chemicals, substances with highly persistent or bioaccumulative characteristics, and substances whose molecular structures give cause for concern).

2 CRA in Europe CRA in Europe has nothing like the prominence that it enjoys in the USA. In the EU Commission’s first report (EC 2000a,b) on the harmonization of methods of risk evaluation the methodological difficulties of CRA were observed and the exis20) The chief political criticisms were for being overly technocratic in approach and preventing, or at least hindering, public participation in risk-related decisions.
