advantage.

ISO 22301:2019 specifies the requirements for the development of a Business Continuity Management System in an organization. These include the design, creation, implementation, operation, monitoring, review, maintenance and continuous improvement of a documented System. The primary purpose of the System is to protect against, reduce the likelihood of, prepare for, respond to and recover from incidents that may cause business interruption. The Business Continuity Management System helps a business to adopt Contingency Plans and take appropriate action. Even if the incident is catastrophic an effective plan will be able to recover and get the business back to normal operations, protecting its reputation and customers. When the organization/business implements and maintains systematic processes to analyze business impact and disruption risks, it can continue operations with the least possible impact on itself and its customers in an emergency. Certification promotes confidence in transactions between the business and its customers and maintains its market share.
