International Risk Management Standard AS/NZS ISO Peter Brass General Manager Risk Management & Audit PIRSA
Provides principles and guidelines on risk management. It is generic and not developed for any specific industry or sector but risk “per se”. Can be applied throughout the life of an organisation, 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 organisations. The design and implementation of risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account an organisation’s particular objectives, context, structure and operations. Risk management should continue to develop organically. ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose of certification.

RISK = effect of uncertainty on objectives NOTE 1 An effect may be positive, negative, or a deviation from the expected. NOTE 2 An objective may be financial, related to health and safety, or defined in other terms. NOTE 3 Risk is often described by an event, a change in circumstances, a consequence, or a combination of these and how they may affect the achievement of objectives. NOTE 4 Risk can be expressed in terms of a combination of the consequences of an event or a change in circumstances, and their likelihood. NOTE 5 Uncertainty is the state, even partial, of deficiency of information related to, understanding or knowledge of, an event, its consequence, or likelihood.
Risk Management & Managing Risks In the Standard, the expressions “risk management” and “managing risk” are both used. In general terms, “risk management” refers to the architecture (principles, framework and process) for managing risks effectively, and “managing risk” refers to applying that architecture to particular risks.
