ISO 22301: Business Continuity Management
ISO 22301: Security and Resilience – Business Continuity Management Systems – Requirements
ISO 22301: Security and Resilience – Business Continuity Management Systems – Requirements was published in June 2012, and revised in 2019. Helen Molyneux is a qualified ISO 22301 Lead Auditor and can advise on all aspects of implementing the new standard and certification.
This standard adopts the same ‘Plan-Do-Check-Act’ cycle as many other Management Systems, and was the first to utilise the Annex SL format which has subsequently been used for ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.
A detailed comparison of the 2019 and 2012 versions of ISO22301 is available from the Downloads section of the website.
A companion standard, ISO 22313: Security and Resilience – Business Continuity Management Systems – Guidance on the use of ISO 22301, was published in December 2012 and updated in 2020.
As well as the usual management system elements, such as performance evaluation and improvement, this standard contains all the key elements for an effective business continuity system, including:
- Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment
- Business Continuity Strategies and Solutions
- Business Continuity Plans and Procedures, including:
- Response Structure
- Warning and Communications
- Exercise Programme
