Risk Management

The Standards Commission has developed a Risk Management Policy which underlies the Standards Commission's approach to risk management which is embedded into the strategic, financial and business planning. The policy decisions on risk is considered each time a strategic decision is taken or a policy is approved.   

Risks are considered, managed and minimised in a manner which is proportionate and affordable when all policies and procedures are designed and implemented. A copy of the Standards Commission policy about Risk Management can be accessed here.
