ISO 22301

The standard was launched worldwide in 2012 as part of the ISO series of management system standards. It sets out the requirements for a business continuity management system (bcms).

Improve how you prioritise and manage risks to your business

Creating a business continuity management system that follows ISO 22301 will help organisations be better prepared for a potentially disruptive incident. Having a structured and tested approach to this will help with continued trading during difficult times and minimise time getting back to business as usual.

Benefits of a business continuity management system

  • Identify and manage both current and future threats to your organisation

  • Take a pro-active approach to minimising the impact of disruptive incidents

  • Keep the organisation’s key areas up and running during major incidents

  • Demonstrate resilience to your customers and suppliers

Is it for me?

The risks you identify will be bespoke to your organisation. The standard helps you build a management system to identify, manage, prevent and communicate risk – it is therefore applicable to all types of organisations whether large or small or in the private or public sector.

Organisations who utilise ISO 27001 Security Management as part of their wider risk management framework would be well placed for integration into a business continuity management system.

What is the process?

We will audit your plans to manage any likely disruption, who is impacted by these, how you have tested your plans and improved them. We will also review your ongoing evaluation of risks, likely impact, plans for communication and your commitment to managing risk.

The process is relatively straight forward and follows a stage 1, stage 2 and annual surveillance model - familiar to those for example who have worked with ISO 9001, 14001 or 27001. The number of surveillance visits you receive will be dependent on whether your area of operation is considered to be high risk.
