Year of Publication : 2004 
Region: (e.g. Canterbury or NZ-wide) NZ-wide
Description: This guideline describes the background to and use of the Risk Screening System (RSS). The
system aims to provide a nationally consistent means of ranking sites that are, or are suspected
of being, contaminated, using readily available information, regardless of location and who is
carrying out the assessment. The purpose of ranking a site is usually so that it may be
prioritised for further investigation.
