ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management

ISO 22301:2012 is the international standard for business continuity management and it specifies requirements for setting up and managing an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS).

It can help you establish a management system that minimises the risks of major societal impact due to disrupted service provision, hence, demonstrate resilience to customers and suppliers.

What is ISO 22301 certification?

ISO 22301 introduces a requirement for metrics for business continuity management, as well as additional emphasis for BCMS operational planning and setting controls.

Using industry best practice guide as a foundation, the standard has been introduced specifically to enable you to understand, develop and implement a structured and formalise a Business Continuity Management System which will help minimise risk and therefore the chance of disruption to your organisation.

The requirements of ISO 22301 are intended to be applicable to all organisations regardless of type, size and nature. The implementation and extend of the requirements’ application depend on the complexity and operational system of each organisation.
