Standard Practice for Addressing and Reporting Losses of Tangible Property
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
|ICS Code (Protection of and in buildings in general):||91.120.01|
This practice focuses on addressing and reporting losses of tangible property.
Loss occurrences are key aspects of risk management. Projecting the possibility or probability of losses, discovering, disclosing, reporting, managing, and minimizing losses to a reasonable extent is a critical economic factor in the success of the owning or holding entity. This practice also establishes acceptable levels of losses.
Losses are often discovered as a result of an occurrence, a physical inventory, property custodian or entity self-assessment, or external audit. An actual loss occurrence can be at any time during the property life cycle.
Assessing and determining financial liability for losses is not addressed in this practice; such assessments are generally subject to individual contracts or other arrangements.
