Your substances



On 26 June 2018, the SCHEER adopted 'Memorandum on weight of evidence and uncertainties - Revision 2018' 1 with the aim to provide greater transparency of its risk assessment process, to ensure consistency between opinions, to be helpful to stakeholders and to be in line with the provisions stipulated in the Rules of Procedure.

The existing Memorandum (2018) is focussed on how to use the weight of evidence approach (WoE) to conduct a risk assessment for stressors to which humans and/or the environment may be exposed. The aim of this document is to support the use of the WoE, wherever appropriate, for the risk assessment activities of the Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER). In addition, it aims to support the consistency in the work of different EU bodies performing risk assessments.
