Each department is responsible for assessing and managing risk to their specific policy areas and delivery; a risk register one of the tools available in the wider risk management process.

This Department has taken a number of steps to ensure it has strong risk and programme management foundations in place and will continue to assess and manage these as appropriate. As such, risk registers are part of the management process used in order to take opportunities and ensure we can achieve our operational and policy objectives.

More information about our risk management approach can be found at page 21 of the Department Annual Report and Accounts 2016-17, which is available at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/655232/DExEU_ARA_v5.0_amended_version_14.08.17__1_.pdf.
