ISO 22301 Business Continuity and BS 11000 Business Relationships


ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Certification

What is ISO 22301?

SO 22301 Business Continuity Management System or (BCMS) is a framework and roadmap designed to help organisations understand the risks to their business, and prioritise these threats so they can be mitigated and factored into business planning.

This international standard specifies the requirements of a management system that will enable an organisation to identify, and therefore, reduce events that would disrupt their normal operation.

Events such as fire, floods, natural disasters, thefts or criminal acts, IT disruption, staff shortages or even a terrorist attack can be identified, before beginning a recovery plan to minimise disruption in the running of your business.

By its very nature, a continuity planning and management system like ISO 22301 means that these problems can be identified before they happen. This allows you to put plans in place to ensure the smooth running of your critical business functions during a time of crisis.

Who is it for? 

ISO 22301:2012 is designed to enable business continuity and contingency planning generic enough to be used by all organisations and parts within an organisation, no matter how big or small, or the nature of the business they conduct.

How can ISO 22301 help your organisation?

  • Gives you the ability to identify and mitigate current threats and potential crisis in your business

  • Helps to minimise the loss and disruption caused by the impact of these incidents

  • Ensures the smooth running of critical business systems

  • Helps to make sure that unavoidable downtime is minimised and you can recover as quickly as possible
