Event Approval Process

ALL events MUST have initial approval from the department's responsible Vice President in order to be considered for approval from Risk Management.

Risk Management reviews events to mitigate risk for Brigham Young University and may issue requirements specific to your event. Please follow the requirements specific to your event. Risk Management reserves the right to interpret, revise, amend or withdraw these requirements at its discretion. For a comprehensive list of all university policies and procedures, please refer to the University Policies website.

Risk Management requires two weeks to process the request. Some events may take longer to process depending on the event details.
