A possible consequence of applying these somewhat ad hoc procedures is the imposition of standards for exposure that are not directly linked to demonstrated reductions in public health risk. As food safety decisions become more risk based, risk assessments will replace these ad hoc but perhaps workable and useful procedures. A consequence is that the data, assumptions, and methodology supporting a risk assessment will be more carefully scrutinized. Risk assessment methodology will become more crucial as our society moves away from food systems designed simply to reduce exposure to hazards toward more risk-based systems designed specifically to protect public health.

Expansion of Risk Analysis The expansion of the concept of RC to include deliberations, enhancing understanding, and implementing practical solutions, extends to risk analysis itself. The consequence of expanding RC is that risk analysis expands to include non-risk assessment procedures that would lead to an understanding of hazards and to practical solutions of managing them. The requirements for performing a complete risk assessment are sometimes not met, but yet solutions to problems are needed.

First, for a risk assessment, scenarios must be defined at the beginning of the process, consistent with our definition of risk being conditional on well-defined scenarios. All stakeholders should be involved in constructing the scenarios. The second phase is formulation of decisions from the results of the assessment. A very extensive discussion identifies and describes the principles and difficulties of the deliberative process (NRC, 1996). Disagreement and controversy are inherent in a deliberative process (NRC, 1996).
