Working Group Discussions
Pages 8

One portion of the Annapolis conference was devoted to working group discussions of specific attributes of the risk-based paradigm for setting priorities. Topics for the working groups spanned a range of technical and process concerns specific to the approach advanced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Each discussion group started from a working paper prepared by the conference orga­ nizers; each working paper was designed to encourage focus on con­ crete tasks and to elicit recommendations for change.
