ISO 22301:2019 Compliance


ISO 22301:2019 standard specifies requirements to implement, maintain and improve a business continuity management system (BCMS).

The requirements specified in this standard are generic and intended to be applicable to all organizations, or parts thereof, regardless of type, size and nature of the organization. The extent of application of these requirements depends on the organization's operating environment and complexity.

The standard is applicable to all types and sizes of organizations that:

  1. implement, maintain and improve a BCMS;
  2. seek to ensure conformity with stated business continuity policy;
  3. need to be able to continue to deliver products and services at an acceptable predefined capacity during a disruption;
  4. seek to enhance their resilience through the effective application of the BCMS.

The ISO 22301 standard is used to assess an organization's ability to meet its own business continuity needs and obligations.
