ISO 22301

Business Continuity Management System Certification

What is ISO 22301?

ISO 22301 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. The standard helps companies build effective backup systems and processes to safeguard against theft, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, terrorist attacks and other extraordinary incidents. 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.

Companies with existing ISO 22301 certificates will need to migrate their certification to the new ISO 22301:2019 standard by 30 April 2021. As such, organisations having their Surveillance or Renewal assessment that is due on 30 April 2021 and beyond will have to perform the migration to ISO 22301:2019 correspondingly. From 30 April 2021 onwards, only new certification assessments to ISO 22301:2019 version will be accepted. For more information, please refer to the IAF Resolution 2019-17 Transitional Arrangements for ISO 22301:2019 here.

Why is ISO 22301 business continuity certification important?

ISO 22301 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 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 certification also helps you avoid loss of revenue and customers should a major problem occur.
