ISO 31000 provides a risk management framework that supports all activities, including decision making across all levels of the organisation. The ISO 31000 framework and its processes should be integrated with management systems to ensure consistency and the effectiveness of management control across all areas including strategy and planning, organisational resilience, IT, corporate governance, HR, compliance, quality, health and safety, business continuity, crisis management and security of the organisation.

What are the benefits?
The new framework is clearer and more concise than its predecessor, and aims to ensure organisations that integrate ISO 31000 into their management systems use risk management to improve planning and make better decisions through the following approach:
- Review of the principles of risk management, which are the key criteria for its success
- Focus on leadership by top management who should ensure that risk management is integrated into all organisational activities, starting with the governance of the organisation
- Greater emphasis on the iterative nature of risk management, drawing on new experiences, knowledge and analysis for the revision of process elements, actions and controls at each stage of the process
- Streamlining of the content with greater focus on sustaining an open systems model that regularly exchanges feedback with its external environment to fit multiple needs and contexts
