This document provides internal guidance on the general principles for the design and implementation of risk rating systems and regulatory resource planning algorithms in the Agency. It is principally concerned with risks to the environment, rather than financial or corporate risks. This guidance relates only to risk related aspects of resource planning at a cross functional level. It provides useful input to the Priority Planning Exercise, but it does not provide, in isolation, a basis for national priority planning, or address the full range of issues that need to be considered in national resource planning. This document refers to key issues on implementation of risk-rating systems and makes recommendations, but it does not represent a policy for the application of risk rating systems within the Environmental Protection or Operations Directorates.
