Success of the First UNE Meeting, followed by more than 400 experts


The First UNE Meeting, held on Thursday 14 May, was a great success and was followed by more than 400 experts from organisations.

This webinar focused on Risk Management and was organized as part of the #EncuentrosUNE series held by the Spanish Association for Standardization every Wednesday in May and June. The inaugural meeting was opened by Javier García, CEO of UNE and Sergio Mujica, Secretary-General of ISO.

García and Mujica presented the standardisation organisations' initiatives on contributing to the positive evolution of the current scenario, including the possibility of free access to a series of standards considered to have a high impact on this crisis, both in the healthcare and business sectors.

The Meeting was attended by three leading figures in risk management, Pilar Pérez-Paradelo (UNE) and Ángel Escorial (APEGRI) presented the trends in the review of standard UNE-ISO 31000: 2018, together with the new ISO-IWA 31 projects underway, with an expected publication date in June. The business practice vision was carried out by Juan Luis Pozo Calderón (Aguas de Valencia), who shared his experience of having implemented UNE-ISO 31000 in order to approach this crisis.

The issues discussed at the Meeting included the evolution of UNE-ISO 31000 to a certified reference; the consideration of this standard as a requirement for private contracts or public procurement; the integration of risk management; continuity and resilience in a single management system, and the treatment of the risks derived from cybersecurity in the implementation of a risk management system.

The next UNE Meeting dedicated to business continuity will be held on Wednesday, 20 May at 17:30 (GMT+2:00) Madrid
