In 2004, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Tread way Commission (COSO), issued a principle-based guidance on designing and implementing an effective enterprise-wide approach to risk management. This guidance defines essential components - such as risk appetite, risk tolerance and portfolio view, provides guidance using common principles, and provides counseling and strategy for an effective program.
ERM has been implemented and is being used by companies around the world. Internal Auditors can be effective in playing an active role in ERM while maintaining their independence, complying with professional standards, and enhancing their role as consultants. Once established though an ERM framework can not be left to grow without monitoring and accountability. Subjecting the ERM Function to an audit helps ensure that the Framework is working as far as effectiveness and efficiencies.
