BS ISO 22301 BS ISO - Societal Security - Business Continuity - Management Standard - Requirements
- British Standards Institution (BSI)
Introducing the latest international requirements standard for business continuity management, BS ISO 22301 specifies the requirements for setting up and managing an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) for any organization, regardless of type or size.
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 organization access to the requirements of a BCMS that will enable your organization to prepare for disruptive incidents that might otherwise prevent you from achieving your objectives.
The standard can be used to assess an organization'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.
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 organization'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 25999-2 in the UK and around the globe. As with all international standards, achieving certification means recognition globally.
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.
