Abstract [en]

In order to ensure that risk assessment and risk management serve their purposes efficiently, it is essential to systematically evaluate actual practices. In this overview, it is proposed that such evaluation studies constitute an important field Of Study that should be recognized as a Subdiscipline of regulatory toxicology with its own research issues and its own methodologies. Previous Such evaluation studies are summarized. Methods are described that can be used for comparing different risk assessments of one of the same substance, for checking the consistency of harmonized classifications with the available data, for assessing the actual margin of safety (i.e. size Of Uncertainty factors) in exposure limits, and for comparing different lists of exposure limits. In conclusion, some important problem areas for future evaluation studies are pointed out.
