Risk Management Process
The contents Risk Management in: – Technical Regulation – Standardization – Conformity Assessment – Market Surveillance – Business Companies (cooperation with authorities) Basic concepts Reference models Sample questions
RM in Technical Regulations: basic principles When risk is a rationale for imposing a regulation, regulation should be adequate to the risk being mitigated and this fact should have objective evidence. There should be no excessive regulation. There should be no insufficient regulation.

RM in Standardization: basic principles Risks should be considered as an important input into standards development planning process; Comments on the standards should include risk identification, requests for comments should contain a clear methodology on how to identify the risks; Risk management records should prove that risks were addressed when revising a standard.

RM in Conformity Assessment: basic principles Conformity Assessment procedures are chosen on the basis of risks related to the products and services. Risk assessment is performed during certification procedures: risk associated with a possible failure of a product is taken into account when devising a sample plan to optimize the conformity assessment costs; in management system certification, non-conformities to the standards are issued on the basis of a proven risk, showing why the nonconformity is important to the business. Assessment of risks related to products is submitted along with technical documentation to conformity assessment bodies.

RM in Conformity Assessment: sample questions
RM in Market Surveillance: basic principles Intensity of Market Surveillance for various products depends on the level of risks that these products present. Risk assessment is an important input for planning of market surveillance processes. Market Surveillance Authorities cooperate with Economic Operators to determine appropriate measures for risk mitigation: manufacturers (importers, distributors) inform Market Surveillance Authorities about the risks and vice versa.

RM in Business vs. ‘others’: basic principles Business companies actively participate in risk management processes of the regulators. Risk management processes serve as a basis for efficient cooperation between regulators and business companies aiming at implementation of appropriate risk mitigation measures and a balanced level of safety. Application of risk management tools within business companies is essential for successful implementation of risk-based regulation. Risks should be considered in a consistent and systemic way by business companies when making strategic and operational decisions.
