AS NZS ISO 31000 2009 new international Standard on risk management now due for publication December

The Standard for risk management (AS/NZS 4360) will soon be replaced by a joint Australia/New Zealand adoption of the newly published ISO 31000:2009. In Australia and New Zealand, the new Standard will be called AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 Risk management – Principles and guidelines.

Due to a publishing delay with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the new adopted Standard is now planned for release in mid December. Standards New Zealand will provide a further update in the December 2009 Touchstone.

New Zealand and Australian representatives have played a substantial role in the development of ISO 31000. For New Zealand, this was possible through financial support from the New Zealand Society for Risk Management, the Institution of Professional Engineers of New Zealand, and Air New Zealand.

AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 seminars planned for early 2010 in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch
