Based on ISO 21505: Governance is about establishing the organisation’s objectives, principles and policies necessary to achieve the goals of development; and management is about working within those principles and policies to achieve the objectives. [Governance sets the ‘rules’ and objectives for the organisation; Management works to achieve the objectives working within the rules]. In summary, governance relates to the processes and outcomes that are necessary to achieve the goals of development. Risk Governance should therefore provide methodology/approach and decision-making framework for the identification, assessment, and management of risks. In this platform on Nano Risk Governance a stage-gate nano-risk [governance] approach/framework is provided. The platform is supported by tested high-quality risk governance tools, data and further information that can assist users in the innovation and development of Safe and Sustainable production and application of manufactured nanomaterials and nano-enabled products.
