Overview of RAI Activities Throughout the Product Life Cycle

Appendix 4. Statements of Concern Worksheet


Using the legal/ethical/policy frameworks and the risks and opportunities you identified from your use case and policy reviews, your risk management work, and you impact assessments, write a list of Statements of Concern (SOCs). The SOCs are the thread that runs through each stage of the product life cycle allowing you to track their status – and ties together your assessments, tools, and documentation. SOCs can either be related to risks or to potential opportunities for innovation. Statements of Concern can be as short as 1-2 sentence bullet points for further tracking.
