Assessing risk means assessing how likely it is that a hazard we know leads to injury. In addition, we need to assess how serious the injury is.


Independent and transparent

VKM is appointed by the Ministry of Health and Care Services. VKM is organized as an independent body, fulfilling the national requirement for independent, transparant and open scientific risk assessments.

Risk assessments in VKM follow current international standards and methodology in the respective fields of responsibility for VKMs panels.
