Long description: In March 2002, NICOLE published a discussion paper on the role of risk assessment in sustainable land management. One of the questions posed in this document is in regard to Risk Assessment models and the differences between them. In early 2002, the Industrial Sub-Group (ISG) of NICOLE contracted with Arcadis Geraghty & Miller International Inc. to undertake a study to examine the human health risk assessment models being used in Europe. The aim of the study was to critically appraise the human health risk assessment models / systems commonly used in the different countries of Europe. The specific objectives of the study were: • To increase the awareness and understanding of model variability for Risk Assessors applying the models; • To provide confidence to Risk Managers relying on model output to facilitate environmental decision making.
