Guidance, observations and industry trends

In addition to the library itself, we've produced guidance to help you use it and a short report detailing our methodology and industry trends. The guidance covers the library structure and observations on the 16 level 1 risk types covered by the library.

Access to an interactive online version of the library

The ORX Reference Risk Indicator Library Explorer is an interactive, online version of the ORX Reference Risk Indicator Library. It helps you explore the library by risk type, see connections between indicators and easily dig into the areas of most interest to you. You can also search for keywords and export different views of the library.

“Our Risk Indicator Practices report last year showed that ONFR functions needed to optimise risk indicator practices in a number of ways. Firstly, by increasing effectiveness through data quality and the identification of predictive indicators and also with timeliness and efficiency in collection through automation. Both ultimately free up 1st and 2nd line capacity and better support active risk management.”

Steve Bishop, Research & Information Director, ORX
