ISO 22301 BCMS

ISO 22301 BCMS

Most organizations will, at some point, be faced with having to respond to an incident which may disrupt
or threaten the day-to-day operations of their business. 

A successful Business Continuity Management
(BCM) programme, established to respond to any potential disruption, is essential for all organisations.
Ensuring a holistic Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) is in place will not only help your
organization recover from disasters, it will also prevent the reputational damage that can arise from any
operational outages, missed deadlines, upset customers, or direct financial loss. Certification against the
requirements of ISO 22301, the International standard for Business Continuity Management, enables you
to demonstrate your commitment to having a most robust BCMS in place. Partnering with SGS enables
you to improve your risk management by implementing effective business continuity management
systems, developing increasingly skillful talent and ensuring consistent and compliant supply chains are
in place.
ISO 22301 is the international standard that helps organizations put business continuity plans in place to
protect them, and help them recover from, disruptive incidents when they happen. It also helps you to
identify potential threats to your business and to build the capacity to deal with unforeseen events. It
helps you to protect your business and your reputation, stay agile and resilient, and to minimize the
impact of unexpected interruptions. Whether your business is large or small, the ability to respond quickly
and effectively to the unexpected is the key to the survival of any organization. This is why having a
robust business continuity management system in place, such as ISO 22301, can be considered as one
of the most comprehensive approaches to organizational resilience.
