ISO 22301

Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) Certification

What is ISO 22301 Standard?

The ISO 22301 standard is an international framework that has been developed to help businesses identify potential threats to critical business functions and design a business continuity management plan. ISO 22301 standard helps companies build effective backup systems and processes to safeguard against theft, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, terrorist attacks and other extraordinary incidents. The ISO 22301 specifies the requirements to plan, implement, monitor, review and improve a company’s business continuity management system, thereby minimising the impact of disruptions.


The ISO 22301 BCMS certification provides formal business continuity guidelines that will keep your organisation operational during and following a disruption. It seeks to minimise the impact to critical business functions, ensuring they are still capable of being delivered or recovered promptly. The ISO 22301 business continuity management standard is applicable for companies of all sizes across any industry, particularly those operating in high risk or complex environments where the ability to function without delay is of paramount importance. ISO 22301 business continuity management certification also helps you avoid loss of revenue and customers should a major problem occur.
