BS 31100:2008 Risk management. Code of practice

BS 31100 is a key standard for risk management. It gives you an understanding on how to develop, implement and maintain effective risk management within your business. Using BS 31100 effectively can help you increase your company’s effectiveness.

Organizations of all types and sizes face a range of risks affecting the achievement of their objectives. While “risk” is normally regarded as negative, risk management is as much about exploiting potential opportunities as preventing potential problems. It is important to bear this in mind whenever managing risk, and in reading this standard. Risk management is an essential part of good management.

Effective risk management help you achieve your objectives by:

a) Reducing the likelihood of events that would have a negative impact on your business
b) Increasing the likelihood of events that would have a positive impact on your business
c) Identifying opportunities where taking risks might benefit your business
d) Improving accountability, decision making, transparency and visibility
e) Identifying, understanding and managing multiple and cross-organization risks
f) Executing change more effectively and efficiently and improving project management
g) Providing better understanding of, and compliance with, relevant governance, legal and regulatory requirements, and corporate social responsibility and ethical requirements
h) Protecting your revenue and enhancing value for money
i) Protecting your reputation and stakeholder confidence
j) Proactively managing your organization’s operations
k) Controlling expenditure and delivering a cost-optimal control environment
l) Retaining and developing customers by being more flexible and responsive to their needs.

The benefits of good risk management (and the consequences of poor risk management) will be felt by you, your staff, shareholders, customers and other stakeholders.

BS 31100 provides recommendations for the framework, process and implementation of risk management and should be used for:
Ensuring that your business achieves its objectives
Ensuring risks are proactively managed in specific areas or activities
Overseeing risk management in your company
Providing assurance on your risk management strategy
Reporting to stakeholders, e.g. through annual financial statements, corporate governance reports or corporate social responsibility reports.

BS 31100 establishes the principles and terminology for risk management. It also gives recommendations for the model, framework, process and implementation of risk management gained from experience and good practice.

This key standard for risk management is useful to CEOs, CFOs, CROs, CIOs, COOs and CTOs; chairmen and company secretaries; managing, IT and finance directors; risk, insurance, claims and business continuity managers; information security specialists; underwriters; Health and Safety officers; and heads of legal affairs.
