Abstract

The Chemical Scoring and Ranking Assessment Model (SCRAM) has been described in Parts I-III of this series (Snyder et al., 1999a; 1999b; 1999c). SCRAM is a chemical scoring and ranking (CSR) system that scores chemicals on the basis of bioaccumulation potential, environmental persistence, and toxicity. Part IV describes various tests and descriptions of the performance of this system. A group of 21 representative chemicals was chosen and scored to test the system. For those chemicals, the percentages of the scores associated with fate-related properties and associated with data uncertainty were determined. The scoring of four of these chemicals is described in greater detail, and the suitability of the scores is discussed. An analysis of the sensitivity of the system to incomplete data sets is presented. And finally, the discriminatory power of the system is described.
