Addressing the role of risk ISO CASCO workshop

Issue 20 – September 2010

The ISO committee on conformity assessment (CASCO) will hold a workshop in Paris on 17 November 2010 on risk-based approaches to designing conformity assessment strategies. The workshop will address areas that play an important part in conformity assessment, including the insurance, finance, and legal sectors.

Risk can never be eliminated, but the development of appropriate conformity assessment strategies can help to reduce risk to acceptable levels. The workshop will determine if ISO/CASCO has a role to play in the design and risks of conformity assessment strategies. The workshop, open to ISO/CASCO members and guests, will be accessible through the internet to a limited number of participants.
