Ecological Risk Assessment Guidelines
The ERA Process: Manage Risk
During the Risk Management stage, the risk manager uses the results obtained from the ecological risk assessment to make decisions. The risk manager implements the appropriate option. Depending on the options it may involve instituting an action or no action at all.
The objective of assessing risk is to support risk management.
Discuss the Results with the Risk Manager
The risk assessor, having completed the formal ecological risk assessment process, discusses the results with the risk manager.
Make Environmental Management Decisions
Once satisfied that the results are of sufficient certainty and detail, the risk manager can then make decisions and implement them.
