ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System

Businesses prepared to cope with any risk scenario and guarantee their normal business activity

AENOR certification in accordance with UNE-EN ISO 22301:2020 includes the rollout and implementation of controls and measures to manage the general risks faced by a company's business continuity.

ISO 22301 is the new international standard to manage business continuity, which, through continual improvement (the PDCA cycle), establishes the requirements for planning, establishing, implementing, operating, supervising, reviewing, testing, maintaining and improving a documented BCMS, taking into account the management of the overall risks of each organisation and their capacity for resilience.

Suitable business continuity management allows organisations to:

  • Have the ability to resist the effects of an incident (resilience) in addition to preventing or avoiding the possible scenarios caused by a crisis situation.
  • Manage the interruption of their activities minimising the deriving consequences of an economic, image or public liability nature.
  • Acquire greater flexibility in response to the interruption of activities.
  • Reduce the costs associated with the interruption.
  • Avoid penalties for the non-compliance of contracts as the supplier of products or services.
  • Have a structured methodology to resume their activities after an interruption.
  • Increase their prestige among clients and stakeholders.
  • Gain potential economic advantages when taking out business insurance policies.
