Business Continuity Management
Protect your organisation against crisis

ISO 22301 is a framework that will help you identify threats to your organisation, to assess the level of risk and to respond effectively.  It will enable you to safeguard your reputation and maintain key business activities should disaster strike.

 

Whilst you may think your organisation is prepared for disaster, ISO 22301 helps ensure your business will keep going during the most challenging and unexpected circumstances.

 

As a leading certification body for a range of ISO Standards, Centre for Assessment will help you understand the value the international Business Continuity Management Standard can bring to your organisation.

What is ISO 22301?

ISO 22301 is the internationally recognised Standard for Business Continuity Management.  It will help you take appropriate steps to guard against risks to your organisation so that, should disaster strike, you are still able to provide goods and services to your customers.

Is ISO 22301 right for you?

The Standard is available to businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes.  It is popular with large, complex organisations but is an equally good option if you are a smaller business.  ISO 22301 is often a requirement in supplier contracts and can certainly give you an advantage in tender applications.

Centre for Assessment will help you at every stage of your journey to achieving ISO 22301 certification, including a gap analysis, internal auditor training and a professional, robust audit.
