The Global Institute for Risk Management Standards is proud to present the third International conference on the ISO 31000 Risk Management Standard, offering the highest quality education and networking experience available for risk professionals.

The rise of the ISO 31000 risk management standard worldwide has changed the risk management landscape beyond compliance towards improved performance and better decision-making. At last year’s conference, we explained how and why every risk management program should be aligned with the principles, framework and risk management process outlined in ISO 31000. This year, we focus on Performance – Governance and Decision Making.

About ISO31000

ISO 31000:2009

  • provides principles and generic guidelines on risk management.
  • an be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association, group or individual. Therefore, ISO 31000:2009 is not specific to any industry or sector.
  • can be applied throughout the life of an organization, and to a wide range of activities, including strategies and decisions, operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services and assets.
  • can be applied to any type of risk, whatever its nature, whether having positive or negative consequences.

Although ISO 31000:2009 provides generic guidelines, it is not intended to promote uniformity of risk management across organizations. The design and implementation of risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account the varying needs of a specific organization, its particular objectives, context, structure, operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services, or assets and specific practices employed.

It is intended that ISO 31000:2009 be utilized to harmonize risk management processes in existing and future standards. It provides a common approach in support of standards dealing with specific risks and/or sectors, and does not replace those standards.

ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose of certification..
