The Hazard Ranking System (HRS) is the scoring method EPA uses to assess the relative threat associated with the release or potential release of hazardous substances from a waste site. The HRS is the primary mechanism used by EPA to determine which sites should be placed on the National Priorities List. The manual is targeted primarily to HRS scorers and HRS package preparers, who frequently are government contractors or State agency staff. Inexperienced scorers should find it especially helpful as a reference while they 'learn' the HRS. Others involved in EPA's site assessment process (e.g., HRS package reviewers) should also find parts of the manual useful.
