Risk assessment Hungary
Risk assessment provides an objective, technical evaluation 
of the likelihood of unacceptable impacts to human health
and the environment. The purpose is to assess the need for
protective measures, since a specific risk assessment
is a precondition for any such protective measures.
Risk assessment can be regarded as a pre-decision, decision 
support method. Its position in the process can be summarised
as follows:
1. Observation of pollution (risk identification)
2. Site Investigation (risk assessment)
3. Engineering intervention (risk mitigation), if necessary

4. Control

Likewise the practices of other countries, Hungarian
risk assessment method has a gradual structure because
of cost-effectiveness and feasibility. In case of gradual
(progressive and iterative) risk assessment the chosen
strategy depends on the degree of knowledge, application
requirements, and the complexity of the problem.
