Before the official release of BS ISO 22301, those eager to get an insight into the contents of this highly anticipated document now have the chance to obtain ISO/FDIS 22301. The purpose of the standard will be to specify the requirements for setting up and managing an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) for any type or size of organization.

Be a step ahead of everyone else

Business continuity contributes to the development of a more resilient society. Organisations without an effective BCMS in place risk significant vulnerability in terms of endurance and the resulting impact on their employees, customers and suppliers. Purchasing ISO/FDIS 22301 will give you immediate access to the requirements of a BCMS that will enable your organization to prepare for disruptive incidents that might otherwise prevent it from achieving its objectives.

The standard can be used to assess an organization’s ability to meet its own continuity needs and obligations and establish a business continuity management policy that provides a framework for implementing effective business continuity arrangements.

Gain complete confidence

In common with other management systems’ standards, ISO/FDIS 22301 is based on the ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ model that seeks to improve continually the effectiveness of the organization through proficient planning, implementation, supervision, review and maintenance.

The ISO/FDIS 22301 specifies the requirements to:

• Identify crucial risk factors already affecting your organisation

• Understand your organization’s needs and obligations

• Establish, implement and maintain your BCMS

• Measure your organization’s overall capability to manage disruptive incidents

• Guarantee conformity with stated business continuity policy
