You can never eliminate all risks until you close the project. There will always be different risks at different levels and in case a secondary or residual risk reponse plan goes south, you should assess and mitigate the situation if you can't eliminate the effect at all.

Risks cannot be eliminated. It will be there always. What you can do is switch to Plan B if Plan A fails.

a) Secondary risks should be treated as any other risks. The answer to these risks can even originate terciary risks. It will stop when the new risks have low probability and impact and the answer is "accept".

b) It is impossible to eliminate all the risks and opportunities. Use management reserves for the "unknown unknowns".

Proper risk management implies control of possible future events and that also include new risks,must also be able to quantify the risk and predict the impact of the risk on the project. The outcome is therefore a risk that is either acceptable or unacceptable. I belive you can no ever eliminate all the risk, you only manage them.

Some of those residual risks may have already been identified in the planning, categorizing appropriately depending on how it sits in the risk matrix. Eliminating all risks is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, its more so about identifying and mitigating. That is primary goal, and as close as one can get to the gold.
