European Norm

49.140   Space systems and operations


This Standard defines the principles and requirements for integrated risk management on a space project; it explains what is needed to implement a project-integrated risk management policy by any project actor, at any level (i.e. customer, first level supplier, or lower level suppliers).
This Standard contains a summary of the general risk management process, which is subdivided into four (4) basic steps and nine (9) tasks.
The risk management process requires information exchange among all project domains, and provides visibility over risks, with a ranking according to their criticality for the project; these risks are monitored and controlled according to the rules defined for the domains to which they belong.
The fields of application of this Standard are all the activities of all the space project phases. A definition of project phasing is given in ECSS-M-ST-10.
This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
