ISO22301 (ISO 22301) Business Continuity Standard

ISO22301:2012 (ISO22301) Business Continuity Management Systems (BCSMS) – Requirements is the international business continuity standard.

ISO22301 was launched in May 2012, replacing British Standard BS25999-2. ISO22301 is based on the 'Plan-Do-Check-Act' model, as found in other management system standards, and set outs the requirements for a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS).

Benefits of ISO22301

  • The requirements in the standard are widely applicable and can be applied in any type or size of organisation, in any location.
  • By creating a BCMS aligned with ISO22301, organisations ensure that they are best prepared for a disruptive incident and, more importantly, that they are able to continue trading and return to business as usual as quickly as possible after an incident.
  • An ISO22301 BCMS protects an organisation’s turnover, profits and reputation by ensuring its preparedness for unplanned disruption.

ISO22301 is also comprehensively covered in the publication: Everything You Wanted to Know About Business Continuity.
