ISO 31000:2018 - The new ISO 31000 framework

Risk management is high on the agenda of organizations and businesses everywhere. The reasons for this are obvious: the better you manage risks, the more effectively you perform, respond to change, gain the confidence of stakeholders and utilise opportunities for growth. Since its launch in 2009, ISO 31000 has been providing a framework to help organisations do just that. Now, the standard has been revised.
Numerous experts, including the Belgian NBN Risk Experts, have contributed to the new ISO 31000, which will be revealed in February 2018. The renewed standard will have a major impact on a range of business fields. It will provide risk management professionals with best practices, structure and guidance. Moreover, it is key for any other business field as risk management is an essential component of all management systems that apply the High Level Structure (HLS).

Get the full scoop on ISO 31000


Eager to find out everything that’s new about the standard? Make sure to join NBN at our launch event ‘Enhance your Risk Management with the new ISO 31000’. The event takes place on Tuesday 17 April 2018 at the Van der Valk Hotel Brussels Airport in Diegem (entrance fee EUR 400).


What’s in it for you?


As a participant, you will:
  • discover insights from high-level speakers: Adriana Cavaliere (Corporate Risk Manager at BAM, Beheersmaatschappij Antwerpen Mobiel and member of the BELRIM Scientific Committee); keynote speaker Jason Brown (Chairman of ISO/TC 262) and Peter Blokland (Risk Expert at BYAZ);
  • learn from risk management testimonials and success stories presented by Belgoprocess and ProRail executives;
  • share your knowledge and experience in rolling out risk management systems, and discover how other risk management professionals implement ISO 31000.


But it doesn’t stop there. Upon deciding to sign up for this launch event or pre-ordering the ISO 31000 standard, you’ll obtain an English copy of the draft version (FDIS). This version closely resembles the final ISO 31000 standard, which is due for publication in March 2018.
