A major stimulus to this formalization has been the move toward increased quantitation of health risks and documentation of the basis for the quantitation. Landmark documentation of the multiphased approach to research, risk assessment, and risk management was developed by a committee of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the National Research Council (NRC) (National Academy of Sciences, 1983). More recently, another NASNRC Committee has reviewed the methodologies used to assess health risks of airborne hazardous materials (National Academy of Sciences, 1994).
