All About ISO 31000 Risk Management Systems

The ISO 31000 risk management system is a framework designed to help organisations build a systematic approach to the management of its risk. Developed by the International Organization for Standardization or ISO and first published in 2009, it was created in order to help develop standard ways for organisations to perform specific business risk management processes. By establishing a set of recognisable guidelines or frameworks for any business to follow, the ISO management standards give organisations a much better chance of being successful.

ISO has developed standards for many different management systems covering lots of industry sectors; size, type and structure of organisation. One important thing to note however is that the standards they have developed have been intentionally created to be as generic as possible, this way they can be applied as an overriding framework across a wider cross-section of businesses and sectors.

This article discusses one specific ISO standard called ISO 31000 – Risk Management System and how organisations can benefit from using this framework.

What is ISO 31000?

ISO 31000 is a management standard that was developed as a set of generic guidelines and frameworks that show an organisation how to implement a systematic approach to risk management. The ISO 31000 standard was created in a way that allows it to be implemented in conjunction with other ISO standards and an organisations existing risk management plan.

This ISO standard was intentionally designed to be as generic as possible. It can easily be adapted to any public or private organisation, or business large or small that is looking for ways to make changes to improve its management of risk.

The ISO 31000 family

The ISO 31000 family consists of a number of standards as follows:

ISO 31000:2009

Principles and Guidelines covering implementation

ISO/IEC 31010:2009

Risk Management – Risk Assessment Techniques

ISO Guide 73:2009

Risk Management vocabulary

ISO 31000:2009

This ISO risk management standard was designed to be used by a wide range of stakeholders within any organisation including the following:

  • Members of the executive level
  • Members of the company risk management team
  • Appointed risk analysts and management officers
  • Any middle management and project managers
  • Internal auditors for compliance purposes
  • Independent practitioners

Who would benefit from the ISO 31000 standard?

The good thing about how the standard was originally developed is that it was created in a way that makes it possible for it to be tailored to fit with any business type, industry sector, public or private organisation that might be interested in taking advantage of what it has to offer. So any size business, large or small would get the same risk management benefits no matter what industry they operate in.
