Notice to Conformity Assessment Bodies

In accordance with IAF Resolution 2017-20 we would like to alert you that there will not be any accredited certification to ISO 31000: 2009, Risk management – Principles and guidelines (publication date 13 November 2009).
ISO 31000 explicitly states that it is not intended or appropriate for certification, and any certification would be a misuse of the standard. Therefore CABs are strongly urged not to promote or provide certification to ISO 31000 and ABs and CABs are requested to report any misuse or need for certification to the ISO Secretariat.
