We live in volatile times. Your organisation needs to be prepared for the worst, whether that’s floods, fires, cyber attacks or terrorism. The ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) gives you the tools to keep going when disaster strikes. It will also help you put in place best practice procedures for reducing the threat of disruption from activities inside your business.
ISO 22301 is an internationally recognised standard that is designed to allow businesses to implement, maintain and improve a business continuity management system (BCMS). The ISO 22301 standard helps you understand and prioritise threats to your organisation. Its BCMS specifies the steps you need to take to reduce the threat of disruption, protect your assets if something does go wrong, and recover quickly from any incidents.
The standard is of particular interest to businesses looking to ensure their products and services can continue to be delivered at an acceptable capacity during a disruption.
The cost of certification depends on several factors. These include your business sector, your annual turnover, and the number of employees you have. We will also need to know if you require any specific industry accreditation, such as from ASCB or UKAS.
However, we are committed to providing you with a cost-effective route to ISO 22301 implementation and certification. That’s why we focus on making certification straightforward. By spending less time creating complex document trails and more time building a risk management system that works for your business, we can save you money.

Once you have achieved certification you will need to pass an audit each year. This is to ensure your organisation continues to benefit from the ISO 22301 business continuity framework. Your first audit will be one year after you receive your certificate.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.
