Even the smallest incident can sometimes cause significant disruption to organisations. In a world that is becoming increasingly unpredictable, the need for an independently certified business continuity management system (BCMS) is becoming more and more vital to help overcome challenges and stay operational.
Certification to ISO 22301:2019 from Lloyd’s Register can help mitigate risk, add resilience to your organisation and gives your customers and stakeholders confidence that you can recover rapidly from the impacts of major incidents.
The certification applies to all types of organisations, regardless of the size or sector. The standard is reviewed every five years, ensuring it remains relevant in the face of the latest threats and risks faced.
The period for transitioning to ISO 22301:2019 has been extended to 30 April 2023.
Remote audits provide you with a fast and flexible way to maintain your audit schedule. They help reduce carbon footprint associated with travel, as well as health and safety risks for people working on hazardous sites or hard to reach areas. Outcomes are consistent with onsite audits, so the integrity of your audit and accredited certification remains the same.
