ISO 31000:2018

ISO 31000:2018 training

ISO 31000 is the overarching ISO standard on how to implement risk management in any organisation, whatever the size or sector. Risk management is about making the best possible decisions in order to get optimum results. As such it is our conviction that it is in every manager’s interest to have a fundamental understanding of this standard. Therefore we offer training events that are accessible to any manager, whatever the size of the company or sector the organisation operates in. We do this in cooperation with distinguished partners of impeccable reputation.

Why ISO 31000 – Risk management?

Any endeavour contains risks. Risks affect organisations in many ways and can have consequences in terms of economic performance and professional reputation, as well as environmental, safety and societal outcomes. Depending on the quality of the decisions taken in these organisations, these consequences can be positive or negative. Therefore, managing risk effectively helps organizations to perform well in this ever more uncertain world.

ISO 31000:2018

ISO 31000:2018, Risk management – Guidelines, provides a set of principles, a framework and a process for managing risk. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size, activity or sector. Developing risk management in your organisation, using the ISO 31000 guidelines, helps any manager to increase the likelihood of achieving her or his objectives. Because, it will improve the identification of risk sources, such as opportunities and threats, strengths and weaknesses. Furthermore it will for an effective allocation and use of resources to cope with the risks identified and get better results. This standard was issued for the first time in 2009 and has been updated in 2018.

ISO 31000 cannot directly be used for certification purposes (of organisations), as it doesn’t provide any normative references to do so. However, it does provide guidance that can be used by internal or external audit programmes by comparing the current risk management practices with the internationally recognised guidance, providing sound principles for effective management and corporate governance.
