Gate to EHS: Global LCA village. March 2002 p. 1-3. This paper is a contribution to a debate in the SETAC-Europe Working Group on impact assessment, which is fully documented in W.

A modified scheme of areas of protection (also known as safeguard subjects) by Udo de Haes & Lindeijer (2000) has opened up a debate in the SETAC-Europe Working Group on impact assessment. This paper should be seen as a contribution to this debate, providing some basic concepts and structures for the debate.
