Communication and consultation
Continual and iterative processes that an organization conducts to provide, share or obtain information, and to engage in dialogue with stakeholders (188.8.131.52) regarding the management of risk (1.1). NOTE 1 The information can relate to the existence, nature, form, likelihood (184.108.40.206), significance, evaluation, acceptability and treatment of the management of risk. NOTE 2 Consultation is a two-way process of informed communication between an organization and its stakeholders on an issue prior to making a decision or determining a direction on that issue. Consultation is: a process which impacts on a decision through influence rather than power; and an input to decision making, not joint decision making.
