An evaluation may reveal that:
- The implementation process was not effectively addressed by some stakeholders;
- There were faults in the design; or
- There were critical information gaps during the planning stage.
Further action may be necessary:
- New toxicity data, or other information, may need to be obtained.
- Sub-goals may need to be revised, but the goal should remain the same.
- The implementation process may have to be revised and re-drafted as necessary and several of the cycle steps repeated.
The whole five-step risk management process may not have to be modified. Rather, it may entail a re-definition of a particular step(s).
