What level of effort is appropriate for investigating a confirmed effect?

The level of effort used in investigating a confirmed effect is dependent on the magnitude and type of the confirmed effect. There can be reduced effort in magnitude and extent, investigation of cause, and investigation of solution studies for small (i.e., effects below the critical effect size) or non-prioritized effects. Investigation studies for these kinds of effects can be based on existing information, data and scientific literature. New monitoring and/or studies can be conducted if there is a need for additional information.

Studies to investigate confirmed prioritized effects of a magnitude greater than or equal to critical effect sizes (large effects) would include specific monitoring studies to determine the magnitude and extent and the cause of these effects, as well as specific studies to identify solutions to eliminate these effects.
