Screening potential ethical impacts and their severity - 'Threshold analysis'
|Screening ethical issues |
Via this screen, you can access a decision tree for screening potential ethical issues related to the manufacturing, transport or use of a product incorporating nanomaterials. This screening tool should be used during the pre-assessment step of the Risk Governance process. You will be asked to assess the extent to which your product incorporating nanomaterials gives rise to nine categories of ethical issues. At this stage, you should just make your best estimate of the severity of each issue. In addition, you should include a specification on each identified potential ethical issue in the comment box.
Main question: To what extent will the nanomaterials and products give rise to the following issues?
No = not applicable, 1 = minor; 2 = moderate; 3 =medium; 4= high; 5=severe
*The output of the decision tree states the minimum requirements. The users can decide to choose a higher EIA scale if they consider this appropriate
