New Guide for Risk Management Systems in Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants Testing Laboratories

1. Scope

This guide covers the establishment and maintenance of a risk management systems as applied to laboratories performing analysis of petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants. It is designed to be used in conjunction with Practice D6792 and is based on the risk management concepts advocated in ISO 31000.


risk management, risk assessment, risk matrix, risk appetite and tolerance, risk rank, risk outcome, risk evaluation, risk register


In revising the D6792 Practice for Quality Management Systems, it was identified that having a separate guide for risk management would create additional resources for the D02 users in understanding how to develop, manage, and use risk processes to supplement quality management systems. Including such information in D6792 would make the document too lengthy.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
