ISO 22301


ISO 22301


Business continuity contributes to the development of a more resilient society. Organisations without an effective BCMS in place risk significant vulnerability and the resulting impact on their employees, customers and suppliers. BS ISO 22301 gives your organisation access to the requirements of a BCMS that will enable your organisation to prepare for disruptive incidents that might otherwise prevent you from achieving your objectives.

The standard can be used to assess an organisation’s ability to meet its own continuity needs and obligations and establish a business continuity management policy that provides a framework for implementing effective business continuity arrangements.

Gain complete confidence

In common with other management systems’ standards, BS ISO 22301 is based on the ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ model that seeks to improve continually the effectiveness of the organization through proficient planning,
implementation, supervision, review and maintenance.

The BS ISO 22301 specifies the requirements to:

  • Identify crucial risk factors already affecting your organization
  • Understand your organization’s needs and obligations
  • Establish implement and maintain your BCMS
  • Measure your organisation’s overall capability to manage disruptive incidents
  • Guarantee conformity with stated business continuity policy

BS ISO 22301 follows the strong international interest in the original British Standard BS 25999-2in the UK and around the globe. As with all international standards, achieving certification means recognition globally.

“In the last 12 months, 81% of managers with BCM in place agreed that it successfully reduced disruption and was worth the cost due to the benefits that it brought to their organization” - ‘Planning for the worst’ The 2012 Business Continuity Management Survey, March 2012

Protect your staff and your reputation

If disruption is not an option for your business, implementing BS ISO 22301 allows you to develop a best practice approach. The standard has been specifically designed to ensure continued business functionality during the most unexpected circumstances.
