Performance based Risk Assessment

Rijkswaterstaat works to ensure system performance. Performance-based risk assessment (PRA) is an important tool in this process, as it analyses the balance between an object’s performance, the potential risks to that performance, and the costs of maintaining it. Performance-based risk assessment aids RWS in making well-founded construction, control, and maintenance decisions.

Rijkswaterstaat has also developed a number of communications on what a PRA entails. As such, there is a folder and film on PRA in general available. Also, guidelines on how to PRA have been set.
