What is Risk Management in ISO 9001:2015

Risk-based thinking ensures these risks are identified, considered and controlled throughout the design and use of the quality management system. In previous editions of ISO 9001:2015, a clause on preventive action was separated from the whole. By using risk-based thinking the consideration of risk is integral.

Risk is inherent in all aspects of a quality management system. There are risks in all systems, processes and functions. It becomes proactive rather than reactive in preventing or reducing undesired effects through early identification and action.
