The International Standards Organisation (ISO) has recently released its latest annual survey, covering the period up to 31st December 2017. Whilst there has been continued rapid growth in a number of standards; the increase in certifications to the business continuity management standard, ISO 22301, has been a relatively modest 11%. This brings the total number of organisations certified globally to 4281.
The picture is slightly better in the UK with a rise of 22% to 700 certifications by the end of last year. This puts the UK in second place behind India with 1678 organisations certified.
We have assisted a number of organisations to achieve certification to ISO 22301, this case study provides an illustrative example.
