Our work in international standards development both informs and supplements the RIMS Risk Management Professional Core Competency Model. This is achieved through the transfer of knowledge from the risk and insurance management profession to other technical experts and management disciplines that contribute towards standardization of policy, principles, and processes for guidance on managing disruption related risks for governments, public and private sector organizations around the world.
Through our recognition as an Approved Nominating Organisation of the Australian National Standards Body, Standards Australia, RIMS Australasia is well positioned to advocate for improved international standardization of societal security, safety, and resilience within government, business, and community sectors .
The Standards Australia approval entitles RIMS Australasia to nominate members to relevant Standards Australia Technical Committees for the development of Joint Australia and New Zealand risk management related standards. Through participation in Standards Australia technical committees, RIMS Australasia plays an important role in influencing risk standards under development by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) of which Standards Australia is a Member.
