“Development of Methodologies for Risk Trade-off Analysis toward Optimum Chemical Substance Management”, which is sponsored by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), was launched in 2007, and was completed in 2011. As a result, reports on the risk tradeoff assessment (in Japanese) were developed and disclosed. An Executive Summary (in English) was also authored in addition to the Japanese full reports, which we hope will be useful.
