ISO 22301 has undergone its first revision , and it is therefore time to assess what this means both for organisations that already hold the certificate and for those who are seeking to gain certification. This article looks into the detail of the changes; with each clause being examined separately so that the reader can [...]

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published the results of their 2016 survey last week and there are big rises in the number of certifications for both ISO 22301 and ISO 27001. By the end of 2016 there were a total of 3853 organizations globally certified to ISO 22301, a rise of 23% from 2015. [...]

Report Concerns The report highlights a ‘worrying finding’ in the low management commitment to this issue. However, given [...]

ISO22301 success

Delighted that I can now announce the successful ISO22301 certification for Care Monitoring 2000, also known as CM2000.  Having previously certified to BS25999, CM2000 had their transition audit on 10 April, and passed with flying colours, and no non-conformities.  We have worked closely with CM2000 towards this transition, implementing a new Management System that will [...]

We should very much like to congratulate Ark-H Handling on their achievement of ISO 22301 certification last week, making them our first client to achieve the prestigious international standard.   The company achieved certification to BS 25999 in 2010 and their successful transition to ISO 22301 now places them in an elite group of companies [...]
