Prepare for the unexpected.

Business continuity management helps organisations plan for the unexpected, manage risk and protect assets. If the worst happens, a business continuity management system (BCMS) certified to ISO 22301 will help you return to 'business as usual' with minimal disruption.

An ISO 22301 BCMS certified by LRQA prepares businesses for worst-case scenarios; be it IT outage, personnel or telecommunications incident, terrorism, inclement weather or pandemic . By implementing clear processes to ensure rapid recovery, ISO 22301 helps guarantee a consistent level of service to your customers and other stakeholders.

Certification applies to all types of organisations; and with the ISO 22301 standard reviewed every five years, it ensures relevancy with the latest threats and risks posed.

The period for transitioning to ISO 22301:2019 has been extended to 30 April 2023.

Benefits of ISO 22301

Mitigate risk and limit disruption

An ISO 22301 certified BCMS with LRQA helps organisations identify and mitigate key risks, reducing the threat of an incident before it even occurs. By identifying potential risks, it prepares you for the unexpected, allowing you to respond quickly and decisively to minimise downtime should an incident occur.

Consistency of service and reputation

ISO 22301 certification ensures controls and processes are implemented to enable your organisation to maintain ‘business as usual’ activities in the face of catastrophe and establishes a safe working environment for employees. It ensures customers receive the level of service they expect from your brand, protecting your reputation.

Customer confidence and new business opportunities

Implementing a robust BCMS with LRQA's globally recognised brand earns customer and stakeholder trust to give a competitive advantage when bidding for new contracts.
