Data, uncertainty and risk governance

This report is from the fourth meeting of the User Committee (UC) of the NMBP-13 nanotechnology risk governance projects held on 03 March 2021. The UC is an external group of twelve stakeholders, all with a particular link to the development and safe use of nanomaterials. The UC follows and critically reflects on the developments and choices being made within the NMBP13 projects. Risk management requires a thorough and balanced weighing of the available evidence as well as an initiative to take account of gaps in knowledge related to the perceived risk by those who are responsible for making decisions. This meeting was organized as a 3-hours virtual session with four invited guests from the NMBP13 projects adding up to 21 attendees. The meeting focused on broad stakeholder-oriented data management with a deeper discussion on how the Precautionary Principle may be used within this context.
