Five factsheets describing risk assessment methods used at the Centre of Substances and Risk assessment (CSR) of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) are presented here with the main aim of promoting greater transparency in the risk assessment methods used at the Institute in general and within the Centre in particular. The factsheets, listed below, reflect a state-of-the-art approach; they are also meant to function as a platform for discussion. 1. Alpha2u-globulin associated nephropathy and renal-cell neoplasms. 2. Follicular thyroid tumours in rodents. 3. Pesticide residue analysis in plant and animal products. 4. Sediment risk assessment for pesticides. 5. How to evaluate and use ecotoxicological field tests for regulatory purposes. The first 3 factsheets are related to human risk assessment and the last 2 to environmental issues. Remarks, omissions or additional information sent to the editors (first name) will be appreciated.
