ISO 31000 Risk Management

Organisations that manage risks effectively are more likely to protect themselves and succeed in growing their business. The challenge for any business is to integrate good practice into their day-to-day operations and apply it to the wider aspects of their organisational practice.  


What is ISO 31000?

BS ISO 31000 is the international standard for risk management. What is risk management? By providing comprehensive principles and guidelines, this standard helps organisations with their risk analysis and risk assessments. Whether you work in a public, private or community enterprise, you can benefit from BS ISO 31000, because it applies to most business activities including planning, management operations and communication processes. Whilst all organisations manage risk to some extent, this international standard’s best-practice recommendations were developed to improve management techniques and ensure safety and security in the workplace at all times. We called this enterprise risk management.

By implementing the principles and guidelines of BS ISO 31000 in your organisation, you’ll be able to implement enterprise risk management and improve operational efficiency, governance and stakeholder confidence, while minimising losses. This international standard also helps you to boost health and safety performance, establish a strong foundation for decision making and encourage proactive management in all areas.


What are the benefits?

  • Proactively improve operational efficiency and governance
  • Build stakeholder confidence in your use of risk techniques
  • Apply management system controls to risk analysis to minimise losses
  • Improve management system performance and resilience
  • Respond to change effectively and protect your business as you grow 


Why BSI?

The food industry impacts every person on the planet. Though what the world's population may eat may differ depending on the geography, wealth, age, gender and availability of goods, no other sector plays such a vital role in all of our day-today lives and culture. Economically, food represents 10% of global GDP (valued at US$48 trillion by the World Bank).

But the food sector also faces significant challenges. Each year, food-borne illness makes one in ten people ill and is the cause of death for millions around the world. Population growth projections and an increasing middle class suggest that the demand for food will increase 70% by 2050. And, consumers are increasingly conscious about what goes into their food, how it's made, its impact on ecosystems and where it comes from.

BSI believes the world deserves food that is safe, sustainable and socially responsible. We support the food sector by developing and publishing standards of best practice, supply chain solutions as well as training and certification to not only the most popular food safety standards, but other business improvement standards that work together to make organizations more resilient.

Working in 172 countries, we pride ourselves on the expertise, integrity and professionalism of our people. Our mission is to help our 80,000 clients, ranging from high-profile global brands to small local companies, survive and prosper in today's world.
