ISO 31000 standard

  CSA agreed to bring the document for TC review for
adoption and the CSA TC was reconstituted in 2007

review from the TC (or a subset of the TC)                10
CSA TC on RM & the Way Forward

  Consensus of the TC members:
   - Adopt ISO 31000 along with development of a Canadian
     supplement based on CSA Q850 - All positive elements of
     CAN/CSA Q850 will be incorporated into the final document and
     into the implementation tools, to ensure alignment and consistency
     for users
   - Develop other relevant standards to provide the detail
     needed to apply ISO 31000 within the context of Canadian
     industry and government
  Potential implementation tools for key sectors are also
being considered
