Motivation and benefits

Frequently companies only have themselves insured against the common and known hazards or risks and meet legal requirements. Many hazards or risks often will not be considered. In February 2018, ISO 31000:2018 (Risk Management) was put into force. ISO 31000:2018 integrates risk management in all business activities. This ranges from establishing corporate strategy to operational implementation in the individual process steps. The new standard does not turn risk management into yet another management system but introduces the perspective of hazards and chances into both strategic management and operational implementation.

  • Risk and safety management means to anticipate coincidence by means of a systematic approach
  • Well-aimed and systematic prevention is the best way to protect the company in order to avert damage done to the company and to increase the opportunity of making higher profits
  • If vulnerability and avoidable hazards are detected, this yields advantages for each company
  • The assessment will be carried out by an accredited Certification Body with qualified auditors
  • Early warning is possible
  • Integration in management systems existing within the company is possible

Assessment acc. to ISO 31000 as well as the Risk Scans can be conducted in combination with a quality, environmental or safety management audit or implemented independently from auditing services.

ÖNORM D 4901 Certification (not accredited)

ÖNORM D 4901 is based on ISO 31000 and represents its implementation in practice. The term "risk management" according to ÖNORM D 4901 includes all uncertainties and effects on the strategic and operational goals, activities and requirements of an organization. The individual elements of ÖNORM D 4901 are objectively reviewed during the audit and the results are subsequently shared with the organization in an audit report.

ÖNORM D 4901 is based on the ISO High Level Structure and can be combined efficiently with other standards due to the same structure and format. Therefore, ÖNORM D 4901 can be quickly integrated into existing management systems and synergies can be used.

ISO 31000:2018 Audit (not accredited)

ONR 49001 is based on ISO 31000 (green text in ONR 49001) and represents its implementation in practice. This risk management audit is correspondingly practice oriented. As ONR 49001 is based on ISO 31000, the ONR 49001:2014 Audit will simultaneously refer to ISO 31000:2018.

Combination of ÖNORM D 4901 Certification and ISO 31000:2018 Audit (both are not accredited)

Upon positive completion of the ÖNORM D 4901 Audit, you will receive

  • a Certificate acc. to ÖNORM D 4901
  • an Attestation of Auditing acc. to ISO 31000

ISO 22301:2012 Certification (accredited)

ISO 22301:2012 is a framework making it possible to achieve the systematic maintenance of an organization’s operating ability (business continuity). ISO 22301 serves to systematically maintain business continuity. Thanks to Business Continuity Management (BCM), the organization can systematically reduce the number of incidents threatening operation and respond to these incidents in a structured and adequate manner. Thus it can restrict the adverse impacts on the organization. BCM is part of an organization’s generic risk management.

  • ISO 31000: Guarantee of a systematic risk management for all industries and sectors
  • Risk Scan / Risk Quick Scan: Quickly obtaining a rough overview of the organization

Requirements relating to assessment acc. to ISO 31000

Assessment acc. to ISO 31000, which is conducted by Quality Austria, will be conducted according to an audit plan made together at the site. The assessors are certified Risk Managers or Risk Assessors. The following requirements will be considered:

  • The company’s risk potential will be analyzed on the basis of the 10 RCM Method.
  • Based on the 10 RCM Matrix Checklist, a risk related temperature curve will be made for the company.

At the Risk Quick Scan, 3 priorities from among the 10 RCM main groups will be chosen by the customer. These priorities will be processed completely. The remaining 7 RCM main groups will be covered by 10 key questions each. The Risk Quick Scan will take approx. 4 hours.

The Risk Scan includes complete processing of all the 10 main groups acc. to the 10 RCM Method and will take 8 hours. All documents and records created during the Risk Quick Scan and Risk Scan will exclusively remain at the customer’s.
