Abstract

A new risk assessment tool has been developed in the CATO project (EU FP7: 'A comprehensive holistic answer centred on an integrated CBRN toolbox'). This tool tackles one of the key differences between a malicious act and an industrial accident: the unknown identity of the chemical released. The tool allows an unknown chemical agent used in a chemical terrorist attack to be categorised based on a limited amount of data. This paper describes the rationale behind the new risk analysis tool and briefly discusses the content given for various chemical groups and how it has been tailored to meet the needs of five user groups: the policy-makers, the incident coordinators, the health care personnel, the responders, and the population. The development work has been carried out by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland in cooperation with the Danish Emergency Management Agency (DEMA).
