||The continuous proliferation of information systems used to characterise risk agents has led to a production of documents which are often different in approach though similar in content. In an attempt to rationalise the various problems involved, a method is proposed for the collection, processing and organisation of the information that will best define the profile of risk agents. A global framework is envisaged within which the information is arranged according to not only technical and scientific but also logical criteria; the information can then be extracted in various aggregates according to requirements. A logical development takes place within the sections of the framework, processing initial raw data into statements of risk and hence into precautionary procedures, providing at each step a justification which guarantees the reliability of the information.
