Relationship between ISO 31000 Risk Management and ISO9001:15

Risk Management is a common topic in ISO Standards. An example is ISO9001:15 Quality which has Risk Management as one of its requirements.

ISO31000 Principles and Guidelines is a guide to manage risks and to fulfill the requirements of many Management Systems Standards.

ISO31000 has five main clauses. The most relevant clauses are: Requirements in sections 4 and 5, Framework in section 4, and Processes in section 5. For its adequate implementation, there has to be a clear scope of the business, and a Risk Management Policy with its objectives.

For each of the defined processes, risks must be identified on different areas: Quality, Environment, Safety, etc. These risks should also be listed by importance utilizing tools such as FMEA, COSO, etc.

In conclusion, ISO31000 helps us meet requirements of ISO9001:15, and of ISO14001:15 Environmental, ISO45001 Workplace Health and Safety, IATF16949:16 Automotive, AS9100C Aerospacial, etc.
