USTAG for Risk Management

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) serves as the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to the ISO Technical Management Board Working Group (ISO/TMB/RM) on Risk Management (PC262). U.S. TAGs review standards and documents and then forward positions to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for voting at the international level with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Voting ISO countries approved the creation of this standards project during 2003-2004. The U.S. TAG for Risk Management uses a consensus process to notify ANSI of how the U.S. should vote and comment to ISO (as ANSI is the voting organization for the U.S.) and develops the ISO 31000 series of risk management standards.

TAG meetings are held at periodically. International meetings are held, but attendance is not required. Membership in the U.S. TAG for Risk Management also involves correspondence, some electronic mail and occasional conference calls.

Membership and participation in a U.S. TAG are not linked to ASSE membership, and the Society does not reimburse U.S. TAG-related expenses. There is a membership fee for U.S. TAG for Risk Management.

We hope you will consider becoming part of this important international risk management standards-setting committee. Please contact Tim Fisher at if you have questions or require further information.
