The travel risk policy guideline to help protect your business travellers.

Developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the ISO 31030 is an industry first guidance with a best practice framework for travel risk management that every organisation should carefully consider. This document provides a formal approach to the development, execution, and evaluation for an organisation to expose its risk gaps. It is a globally recognised standard for travel risk and World Travel Protection has created a one-of-a-kind ISO 31030 Self-Audit tool that accompanies it.

ISO 31030 FAQs

ISO 31030:2021 is an industry-first best practice framework that helps organisations evaluate and manage their travel risks effectively. The guidance document was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and provides a structured approach to manage risks associated with travel. It covers policy development, program implementation, threat identification, risk assessment, and prevention/mitigation strategies.

Organisations use the guidance document to benchmark their travel risk policies, determine if they are fulfilling their legal duty of care obligations, and ensure their travellers are safe. ISO 31030 allows travel managers to identify threats and opportunities and take ownership of travel risk.

Contrary to popular belief, ISO 31030 is not certifiable. It simply offers a travel risk management framework to organisations to ensure their travel policies are up to date. However, our team has developed a self-audit tool based on this guidance that breaks down the 48-page document leaving you with actionable steps. Additionally, many organizations rely on our expert consulting services to ensure that their policies are up to date and in line with ISO 31030.

ISO 31030 is applicable for organisations of any type, regardless of their size or industry sector, as long as they have a travelling population. This includes commercial businesses, charitable and not-for-profit organisations, governmental agencies, and academic institutions. The guidance document is designed to be adaptable to a broad range of settings that travel managers or those responsible for the safety of their travellers should be using.

This document does not apply to tourism and leisure-related travel, except in relation to people travelling on behalf of the organisation.

This allows travellers to take ownership of their own safety, continuously monitor their environment, or call for reassurance or further information about emerging or evolving situations if they need.

Travellers have the ability to share their location within a general 5km radius. This ensures they receive relevant information while alleviating concerns of constant tracking. High-precision tracking is also available and is triggered when the traveller activates the emergency call button.

Countries of Interest

To help travellers better prepare for future trips, they have the power to add any number of countries to their interest list within our Travel Assist App. Once added, they’ll gain access to each country’s intelligence report and can view all alerts for those countries on the app.

Our Travel Assist App connects travellers to emergency help whenever they need it.
