As conformity assessment standards are edited and reissued by ISO/CASCO, risk-based thinking is replacing the traditional preventive action requirements. Requirements for addressing risks and opportunities are incorporated into the management system requirements. The intention is to encourage organizations to use risk-based thinking as an ongoing activity to prevent nonconformities from occurring, as well as enhance the occurrence of opportunities. During this webinar, we will review the requirements for risk-based thinking and explain how risk-based thinking can be used as a preventive action process for organizations.
