Risk Assessment Strategy Group

Leader Wataru Naito


This group is chiefly examining how to assess risks associated with chemical substances and nanomaterials with their management taken into account (= strategy). The study in the group regarding the risk associated with nanomaterials consists of development of efficient hazard assessment methods in the regulatory context, and development of a simple and quick hazard assessment method for voluntary safety management. Regarding the risk associated with chemical substances and their combined exposure, methodologies for estimating both human health risk and ecological risk have been developed and applied to actual problems.
