Renn In practical risk management, the evaluation of options is done in close cooperation between experts and decision makers. As pointed out later, this is the step in which direct stakeholder involvement and public participation is particularly important and is therefore best assured by making use of a variety of methods (Rowe and Frewer 2000; OECD 2002; Renn 2008). The final step in the decision making process should be the selection of risk management options. Once the different options are evaluated, a decision has to be made as to which options are selected and which rejected.

Routine reporting of science/technology is often mediated through the voice of the ‘expert’ and numerous studies have found that official sources (such as politicians and heads of government agencies, or scientists attached to trusted institutions) tend to gain advantaged access to the news media (see Manning 2001). Reporters typically approach these sources first before seeking out alternative viewpoints. This may explain the general tendency for risk reporting in general to offer information with a reassuring rather than an alarming tone (Petts et al.

A close communication link between risk/concern assessors and risk managers, particularly in the phases of pre-assessment and tolerability/acceptability judgement, is crucial for improving overall governance. Similarly, co-operation among natural and social scientists, close teamwork between legal and technical staff and continuous communication between policy makers and scientists are all important prerequisites for enhancing risk management performance. This is particularly important for the initial screening phase where the allocation of risks is performed.
