Clear progress has been made in the development and harmonization of chemical risk assessment methodologies and the application of estimation methodologies. This paper is intended to contribute to the effective implementation of risk evaluation and the management of chemical substances by applying simple and highly functional hazardous assessment methods This procedure includes all proposed new and existing chemical substances that will be used in the manufacture of products, aid in the maintenance of plant and equipment or finished products stored or handled on site. They may be solids, liquids or gases, being raw materials, finished products, by-products, aids to manufacture, consumable chemicals, cleaning solvents, etc.
