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:
Risk Assessment and Management Commission
529 14th Street, NW.
Washington, DC 20045
