ISO 22301 brings together international best practice to help organizations respond to, and recover from, disruptions effectively. This means reduced costs and less impact on business performance should something go wrong. What’s more, companies with multiple sites or divisions can rely on the same consistent approach throughout the entire organization.
ISO 22301 is applicable to all organizations, regardless of size, industry or nature of business. It is also relevant to certification and regulatory bodies as it enables them to assess an organization’s ability to meet its legal or regulatory requirements. Based on ISO’s High-Level Structure (HLS), it aligns with many other internationally recognized management system standards, such as ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management). As such, it is designed to be integrated into an organization’s existing management processes.
