(a) to identify risks that must be specifically addressed in an insurer's risk management policy; and
(b) to set out the requirements for an insurer to document its risk management policy through the establishment and maintenance of a risk management strategy.
4 For further guidance in relation to an insurer's risk management policy, see Schedule 1.
