Frequently companies only have themselves insured against the common and known hazards or risks and meet legal requirements. Many hazards or risks often will not be considered. In February 2018, ISO 31000:2018 (Risk Management) was put into force. ISO 31000:2018 integrates risk management in all business activities. This ranges from establishing corporate strategy to operational implementation in the individual process steps. The new standard does not turn risk management into still another management system but introduces the perspective of hazards and chances into both strategic management and operational implementation.
- Risk and safety management means to anticipate coincidence by means of a systematic approach
- Well-aimed and systematic prevention is the best way to protect the company in order to avert damage done to the company and to increase the opportunity of making higher profits
- If vulnerability and avoidable hazards are detected, this yields advantages for each company
- The assessment will be carried out by an accredited Certification Body with qualified auditors
- Early warning is possible
- Integration in management systems existing within the company is possible
Assessment acc. to ISO 31000 as well as the Risk Scans can be conducted in combination with a quality, environmental or safety management audit or implemented independently from auditing services.
ONR 49001:2014 Certification (not accredited)
ONR 49001 is based on ISO 31000 and represents its implementation in practice. This risk management audit is correspondingly practice oriented. The single clauses of ONR 49001 will be reviewed at the audit objectively. Afterwards the relevant results will be available in an audit report. The term of “risk management” acc. to ONR 49001 includes all uncertainties and impacts on the objectives and targets, activities and requirements of an organization.
ATTENTION: ONR 49001:2014 will soon be revised on the basis of ISO 31000:2018 and will probably be published in the second quarter of 2019 as ÖNORM 4901. Quality Austria is represented in the standardization committee and accordingly has all the information in the customer's interest quickly and on time.
ISO 31000:2018 Audit (not accredited)
ONR 49001 is based on ISO 31000 (green text in ONR 49001) and represents its implementation in practice. This risk management audit is correspondingly practice oriented. As ONR 49001 is based on ISO 31000, the ONR 49001:2014 Audit will simultaneously refer to ISO 31000:2018.
Combination of ONR 49001:2014 Certification and ISO 31000:2018 Audit (both are not accredited)
Upon positive completion of the ONR 49001 Audit, you will receive
- a Certificate acc. to ONR 49001
- an Attestation of Auditing acc. to ISO 31000
ISO 22301:2012 Certification (accredited)
ISO 22301:2012 is a framework making it possible to achieve the systematic maintenance of an organization’s operating ability (business continuity). ISO 22301 serves to systematically maintain business continuity. Thanks to Business Continuity Management (BCM), the organization can systematically reduce the number of incidents threatening operation and respond to these incidents in a structured and adequate manner. Thus it can restrict the adverse impacts on the organization. BCM is part of an organization’s generic risk management.
Basically risk management can be conducted by companies and organizations independently from the size or sector.
