The harm criteria are often based on evidence of acute toxicity studies as the most likely type of exposure is single, short term exposure. Acute toxicity data is often limited, and, as ethically obtained human data for serious ill-health is difficult to acquire, the whole process involves considerable uncertainties [20-211. Nevertheless, it gives an idea of geographic areas for which careful consideration of whether a development should be allowed and the areas for which emergency planning should be undertaken.

Therefore, risk needs a potential for exposure, either as a consequence of an event (usually called an accident) or as incidental exposure occumng in a consequence of the methods and procedures used during manufacturing, use or disposal. Risk needs to be considered in the context of the individual and that of a society (or population). Individual risk is: ‘the frequency at which an individual may be expected to sustain a given level of harm from the realization of specified hazards’; and, societal risk is ‘the relationship between frequency and the number of people suffering from a specified level of harm in a given population from the realization of specified hazards’.
