Here’s Your Chance to Help Improve ISO Risk Management Standards

Apr 21, 2021

ISO Technical Committee 262 focuses on standardization in the field of risk management. Its core standard is ISO 31000, Risk Management Guidelines, which aims to help organizations identify and manage risk. ASSP is administrator of the technical advisory group that advises ANSI on this global standard.

To better identify the needs, issues and challenges of those who use the ISO 31000 standards, technical reports and related documents, the committee is conducting a survey

“The purpose is to gather information about the use, strengths and weaknesses of ISO 31000 to determine where more guidance may be helpful,” committee leaders say.

The results will guide the committee's strategic business plan and future work. You can take the survey through May 31, 2021.
