What is ISO 22301 certification?
ISO 22301 is a globally recognised standard that helps organisations understand and manage the risk of any threats to their business. It can be applied to companies of all sizes in the private sector, as well as universities, charities, not-for-profit and public sector organisations.
Achieving UKAS-accredited certification to ISO 22301 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential customers and other interested parties that you have the appropriate controls and measures in place for managing your organisation’s response to a disruptive incident. It can also give you a vital edge over your competitors.
How it can make a difference to your organisation
This international best-practice certification will help you to minimise disruption and maintain your services at all times.
Win more business
Certification can be a key differentiator or a condition to supply, opening the doors to more opportunities and increased sales.
Should disruption occur, you will be able to define timescales for resuming services and your employees and stakeholders will know exactly what to expect.
By showing your commitment to maintaining excellent service at all times, even during disruption, your reputation with customers will improve.
By regularly undergoing processes such as auditing and risk assessment, you’ll be able to ensure that your organisation remains effective and continues to improve.
Adopting an internationally recognised standard will improve your organisation’s reputation and allow you to attain stakeholder requirements on a worldwide scale.

Frequently asked questions
The time it takes to implement an ISO 22301-compliant BCMS can vary depending on the size and complexity of your organisation, but it typically takes between 4 – 6 months.
We can help you at every step of the way, firstly by conducting a gap analysis of your current operational control practices, then by developing a customised implementation plan, providing training and support to your staff, and finally by helping you navigate the certification process.
We stay up to date with the latest ISO standards and best practices by maintaining active involvement in industry associations and participating in ongoing training and education programs. We also regularly review updates and revisions to the standard to ensure our clients are always receiving the most current guidance and advice.
We have a 100% success rate guiding our clients through ISO 22301 certification, however, it’s important to note that the certification we support you through is carried by an entirely separate, accredited certification body and by its nature is not something we can ever guarantee. We believe that this gives you a level of compliance that is second to none.
For a consultancy team who routinely manage compliance programs for other organisations, progressing through our own certification process is always a valuable reminder of how the experience feels and we think that this contributes towards our efficient but sympathetic approach to consulting for others.
