ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems

The ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) has rapidly increased in popularity as organisations learned that they were not able to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even those businesses that had a business continuity plan have struggled. This is because unless the plan is set within the context of a full ISO management system, it is not embedded in the organisation I the way it needs to be to get top management buy in and is not subject to the testing it undergoes in the form of a third party audit.

So, to ensure you are fully prepared for both the foreseeable and unpredictable events that the future holds, whether it be a power cut, a break in or even just the absence of key staff, you really need a certified ISO 22301 business continuity management system.

Why You Need ISO 22301 Certification

It helps you respond better

When things do go wrong, a carefully developed and implemented BCMS allows you to respond more quickly and more effectively. You will have methods that have been rehearsed to restore operations to an agreed level and timeframe.

It’s the ultimate risk management tool

ISO 22301 allows you to identify and mitigate threats and potential crises in your organisation. Additionally, because of the rigours that an ISO system instils, it means that you are able to learn lessons when things do go wrong and reduce the likelihood and severity of similar events in the future.

It keeps your business open

When things go wrong, you don’t want your operations to come to a halt. At the most basic level, ISO 22301 ensures you have contingency plans to ensure you are able to operate at a minimum acceptable level until conditions return to normal.

It minimises loss and disruption

Sometimes it’s just impossible to avoid disruption, for example, government enforcement throughout COVID-19. However, you can have plans prepared to minimise the disruption and losses to your business. The ISO 22301 framework helps you do that.

You can win more business

Larger organisations want confidence that their suppliers are not going to let them down. They need to know that in the event of a disruption to their supplier’s business, that it will not impact too severely on their own business. ISO 22301 certification can help provide that confidence.
