Management Systems

ISO 22301: 2019

ISO 22301:2019, Security and resilience – Business continuity management systems – Requirements, is a management system standard published by International Organization for Standardization that specifies requirements to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve a documented management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of occurrence, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptive incidents when they arise.

It is intended to be applicable to all organizations, or parts thereof, regardless of type, size and nature of the organization.

Organizations that implement a business continuity management system (BCMS) based on the requirements of ISO 22301 can undergo a formal assessment process through which they can obtain accredited certification against this standard. A certified BCMS demonstrates to internal and external stakeholders that the organization is adhering to good practices in business continuity management.


  • Demonstrates an organization’s commitment to business continuity and its ability to respond to disruptions.
  • Serves as a benchmark for an organization’s resilience in handling unexpected events and minimizing risks.

Benefits of Certification:

  • Enhances credibility with clients and stakeholders by showcasing a proactive approach to risk management.
  • May be required by some regulations or contracts in specific industries.
  • Improves internal organization and operational efficiency.
