19 Dec Risk management regulation
Standardization and the use of standards in risk management regulations related to land-use planning is increasingly popular (Ingvarson, 2020, p. 395). The development towards increased standardization is also observed in diverse risk domains such as terrorism and security risk management (Jore, 2020), cybersecurity (Skotnes, 2020) and disaster risk management (Morsut, 2020). Increased standardization, irrespective of risk domain, is also met by critical voices that problematize the value of standardization of risk management regulations (Aven and Ylönen, 2019, Olsen, 2020a). Ingvarson (2020) indicates that analyses of the effect or value of applying risk management processes with different levels and types of standardization are not readily available in research literature. It is suggested that positioning as proponents or opponents of standardization of risk management regulations is based on mostly practical considerations and intellectual reasoning rather than empirical data on the effects of standardization. Arguments from the ongoing debate on whether standardization of risk management regulations is desirable represent both the strengths and weaknesses of standardization (Ingvarson, 2021).
