Step 5: Work out your introduction's risk to the environment

By now you know the human health risk of your introduction – medium to high, low or very low – which you completed in step 4.

To be able to finish your categorisation you need to work out the risks of your introduction to the environment. To work this out start at 5.1 and continue as far as you need to through each step.

Once you have your answer for the risk of your introduction to the environment – medium to high, low or very low – go to Step 6. In Step 6 you'll combine the human health risk and the environment risk for the final category of your introduction.
