ISO 22301 – Business Continuity Management System

ISO 22301:2012 Business Continuity Management System specifies the requirements for organizations to develop the necessary plans to ensure business continuity, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and prepare to reduce risks and recover from disruptive events.

The conditions specified in the ISO 22301:2012 Business Continuity Management System standard are general for organizations in different sectors, and are partially applicable to all or a certain part of the organization in all organizations, regardless of sector or number of employees. The scope of application of these conditions depends on the working environment and complexity of the organization.

The standard is an evolution of best practice from the previously published BS 25999 Business Continuity Standard, issued as an ISO standard.
