The project title, Prima phacie, is derived from the title of the original European Food Safety Authority call, ‘Pest risk assessment for the European Community plant health: A comparative approach with case studies’. In Latin, prima facie means ‘at first sight’, but in legal terms is interpreted to mean evidence which provides the basis for a legal case. The evidence is suggestive but not conclusive. Risk assessors often deal with evidence that is suggestive but not conclusive.
