In 1995, the USEPA updated and issued the current Agency-­ wide Risk Characterization Policy (USEPA 1995). The policy calls for all risk assessments performed at the USEPA to include a risk characterization to ensure that the risk assessment process is transparent; it also emphasizes that risk assessments are to be clear, reasonable, and consistent with other risk assessments of similar scope prepared by programs across the agency.
