Risk Assessment Techniques-New IEC/ISO 31010:2019

A new edition of IEC 31010 Risk Management Risk Assessment Techniques was recently released and will be published as an Australian standard later in the year. This presentation will explain the philosophy the team followed in revising the standard and will explain the differences between the latest release and the 2009 version, and explaining the ‘why’ behind it.

Risk is defined in ISO 31000 Risk Management as the effect of uncertainty on objectives - but what do we mean by uncertainty and what implications does this have for the practicalities of assessing risk?

Delivered by Professor Jean Cross, this presentation will draw attention to some of the techniques introduced in this edition that were not in the last.

*This event is also available via Webinar.*
