Business continuity consultation to close on 26 February

06 February 2019

Following the launch of ISO 22301 Draft International Standard for Public Comment (DIS), the British Standards Institution (BSI) is running an online consultation.

This is the next stage after the BSI revised the international business continuity management systems (BCMS) BS EN ISO 22301 and the public consultation process is set to close on 26 February.

The BSI states that the ability of an organisation to continue operating during and after a disruption has never been more important.

Dealing with disruption is another frequent topic of conversation with the PFM Editorial Advisory Board.

Business continuity plans are therefore the essential links in supporting individuals and teams responding to the disruption, says the BSI.

It has designed ISO 22301 to inspire trust in the organisation's ability to deal with a disruption, while protecting its reputation and responding to legislative requirements.

Implementing the standard is also designed to reduce the cost of disruption, allowing companies to create a competitive advantage and contributing to their levels of resilience.

Those wishing to take part in the public consultation for ISO 22301 can do so here.
