ISO 22301:2012 (BCM)

Certification Profile

The lasting success of companies does not only depend upon the prevention of issues and incidents, but also upon being prepared when the inevitable occurs.
Fire, flood, natural disasters, theft, IT outage, and health problems can instantly bring production to a standstill – without warning and when you least expect it.

Business Continuity Management

A proactive approach allows you to minimize the impact of incidents, and to understand the effects of potential threats.

Our qualified auditors will assist you in assessing risks, and propose remedies for any gaps you may have in your crisis plan.

The implementation of a BCM in accordance with ISO 22301 enables you to identify the factors that may negatively affect the continuity of your operations. By systematically identifying those factors and implementing preventative measures, contingency plans and response procedures, you prepare your organization for the worst. The standard specifies requirements for an effective BCM system.

Significant benefits

Implementation and certification of a business continuity management system creates significant benefits:
Optimized preventative measures

  • Assurance for clients, business partners and shareholders that your organization is prepared
  • Evidence of due diligence in case of complaints following a business interruption
  • Saving costs by protecting productivity
  • Minimized downtime, maximized resilience

The audit can be conducted whenever you feel ready. The duration of the audit depends on the size of the site and the complexity of the processes, but is always at least 1 day. After a successful certification audit, you obtain a certificate with a validity of three years. After certification, yearly surveillance audits will be necessary to maintain certified status.
