Risk assessments

A risk assessment conducted by VKM is a review, summary, and objective assessment of scientific documentation available to determine the risk associated with a particular situation or action.

Scientific results and data used in our risk assessments are obtained from peer-reviewed articles and published documents, including risk assessments from national and international bodies, and from national and international surveillance and monitoring.
