ONR 49001:2014 Risk management

Auditing of risk management systems on the basis of the ONR 49000 series including assessment of the ISO 31000 risk management principles and guidelines.
(This certification by SQS is not offered any longer. Existing certificates stay valid until the end of their validity. The ONR 49001:2014 will be replaced by ONR 4901.)


Risk management goes hand in hand with entrepreneurial success. Not just limited companies which are obliged to assure systematic risk management as part of their internal control systems but also all other organizations in general are exposed to a more rapidly changing and complex business environment with the associated risks. These must be identified in good time and the necessary strategies, measures and success checks developed so as not to jeopardize success.


The user knows and reduces his entrepreneurial risks. These are clearly identified and systematically included in process control. Certified risk management enables the user to produce evidence for stakeholders (e.g. insurance companies, banks, boards of directors, authorities, auditors etc.) of a functioning risk management system and by doing so to increase confidence in good management practice. Risk management is a good instrument to generate transparency.

Target groups

Enterprises and organisations in all branches and of all sizes.


3 years - there is an annual audit to ensure that standards are being maintained and a recertification audit after three years.


ONR 49001 risk management can be combined with ISO 9001 (quality management) and all other management system standards.
