Now is time for the experts nominated by their national standardization bodies (NSBs) and the delegates to prepare for the Amman meeting which will take place from Oct. 17th to Oct. 21st. After the Moscow reset it will be exciting to see how the NSBs perceived the Moscow work of working group 2. All ISO 31000 end users and risk management practitioners who want to learn more about the ongoing revision of ISO 31000 or want join the work on standardizing risk management should contact the NSB in their county.
On Monday, April 4th, 2016 some hard work started with the opening of wor-king group 2 that had to deal with over one thousand comments on an updated version of the committee draft of ISO 31000 during the week. By the end of the week the convenor, Prof. Dr. Bruno Brühwiler was able, thanks hard work in collaboration across 6 subgroups to forward a new committee draft to the TC with the working group’s recommendation to circulate it for ballot. On Friday April 8th, 2016 at 16:50 Moscow time Kevin Knight, chair of ISO/TC 262 thanked RusRisk, Rosstandard and the Financial University for their hospitality and support of ISO/TC 262 and its working groups during the prior week.
TC 262 and its WG 2 met in Rio from November 9th to 13th hosted by Modulo and ABNT. A design specification with infor-mative recommendations for the revision of ISO 31000 was agreed and in addition to this core topic a comprehensive agenda was tackled with all working groups and ad hoc groups reporting on their work. Also a new working group 5 on the Mangement of Legal Risk has been created with Dr. Xiaohong Gao as convenor.
ISO 31000 is the probably the leading standard for risk management in the world having been adopted by more than 60 countries (see enclosure) and endorsed by international organizations. … to improve transparency, the working group recommended that TC 262 authorize the working group to stop the limited revision and concentrate its resources on a full revision.
Reducing, anticipating and managing risk are all part of the daily grind for organizations that have integrated risk management into their business strategy. That’s why they often turn to ISO 31000 on risk management to support themselves in this task.
ISO standards come up for revision every five years, and ISO 31000, and its accompanying Guide 73 on risk management terminology, are no exception.
The TC 262 Working Group “Core risk management standards” (WG2) was invited to its 4th meeting in Paris at the “Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire ” (ISRN) from March 9th to March 13th, 2015. About 35 experts from 20 countries participated in this meeting. In a fundamental discussion it recommended to TC 262 stopping the limited revision of ISO 31000 and ISO Guide 73 and starting the full revision.
