Modest Increase in Number of ISO 22301 Certifications in 2017

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.
