This website is a historical record. ILGRA has ceased to function. Related later work on risk management and handling in Government was led out of the Treasury as summarised at: http://www.hm-treasury.gov.uk/psr_governancerisk_index.htm.
The UK's Interdepartmental Liaison Group on Risk Assessment (ILGRA) was an informal committee of senior policy makers on risk issues.
Its purpose was to help secure coherence and consistency within and between policy and practice in risk assessment as undertaken by Government and help disseminate and advance good practice. ILGRA met regularly to share views on and experience of risk assessment maters. ILGRA had formal Terms of Reference.
The committee comprised UK Departmental policy representatives . ILGRA was chaired by HSE's Chief Scientist. HSE's Risk Policy Unit provided the Secretariat.
ILGRA had three Sub-Groups:
ILGRA reported to UK Ministers.
Ministers fully endorsed the reports and the recommendations contained in them. The Implementation Steering Group on risk agreed that the 3rd Report to Ministers should be put on the ILGRA website and that the Risk Support Team should work with HSE to take forward the ILGRA suggestions for future action, reporting to the ISG as necessary.
