What is ISO 22301?
ISO 22301 is the Business Continuity Management System standard. It helps reduce the likelihood of disruptive incidents and keeps your organisation running through difficult times. You will also be able to recover more quickly.
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 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.
Many organisations seek this certification to enable them to understand, develop and implement a structured and formalised business continuity management system, helping minimise risk and the chance of disruption to the organisation, identify what responses will be needed if a disruption occurs and provides the capability to adequately react in case of disruption.
Holding certification to the standard also demonstrate to stakeholders that your business continuity capability is appropriate to the size and complexity of your organisation.
Why choose ISO 22301?

Resilience : proactively improves resilience when faced with the disruption of an organisation’s ability to achieve key objectives
Management: delivers a proven capability for managing a disruption and protecting (and enhancing) reputation and brand
