This Handbook provides a single, centralized body of risk characterization implementation guidance for Agency risk assessors and risk managers to help make the risk characterization process transparent and the risk characterization products clear, consistent and reasonable (TCCR). TCCR became the underlying principle for a good risk characterization. The elements of a risk characterization (among them, for example, key findings, policy choices, uncertainty and variability) describe in a straight-forward fashion the critical points that a good risk characterization should contain to make it valuable in any Agency risk assessment.
