New ISO/IEC Standard on Risk Assessment Complements Risk Management Toolbox Reply

Two recently published ISO standards on risk management have just been joined by a third on risk assessment techniques. Together, they provide organizations of all types with a well-stocked toolbox for tackling situations that could affect the achievement of their objectives.

ISO/IEC 31010:2009, Risk management – Risk assessment techniques, has been developed jointly by ISO and its partner IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission).

ISO/IEC 31010:2009 will assist organizations in implementing the risk management principles and guidelines provided by the recently published ISO 31000:2009, itself complemented by ISO Guide 73:2009 on risk management vocabulary.

It is available from ISO national member institutes (see the complete list with contact details). It may also be obtained directly from the the ISO Store.
