Risk Assessment and Risk Management
in Regulatory Decision-Making

PDF Version of the report of the
Commission on Risk Assessment and Risk Management

When printed, this version of the Commission's report will correspond very closely to the hard-copy version of the report released to the public on June 13. In particular, the lines on each page are numbered as in the hard-copy version. It is important to the Commission that reviewers identify specific passages in the report by page and line numbers when they submit their comments and/or suggestions to the Commission. Because there may be some slight deviations between the Commission's hard-copy version and your printout, it would also be helpful if you indicate that your review is based on the PDF version (Portable Document Format).

Your comments should be received by the Commission no later than August 9, and preferably earlier. They should be mailed to:
