    Gives guidance on selection and application of systematic techniques for risk assessment.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This International Standard is a supporting standard for ISO 31000 and provides guidance on selection and application of systematic techniques for risk assessment.

    Risk assessment carried out in accordance with this standard contributes to other risk management activities.

    The application of a range of techniques is introduced, with specific references to other international standards where the concept and application of techniques are described in greater detail.

    This standard is not intended for certification, regulatory or contractual use.

    This standard does not provide specific criteria for identifying the need for risk analysis, nor does it specify the type of risk analysis method that is required for a particular application.

    This standard does not refer to all techniques, and omission of a technique from this standard does not mean it is not valid. The fact that a method is applicable to a particular circumstance does not mean that the method should necessarily be applied.

    NOTE This standard does not deal specifically with safety. It is a generic risk management standard and any references to safety are purely of an informative nature. Guidance on the introduction of safety aspects into IEC standards is laid down in ISO/IEC Guide 51.
