Bureau Veritas Certification adds global UKAS accreditation for ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems certification to its risk services portfolio.


08/12/16


Bureau Veritas Certification (BVC) has achieved accreditation to international management systems standard ISO 22301:2012 from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) through Bureau Veritas Certification Holding SAS, UK Branch. This independent recognition for Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS) certification enhances the credibility of organizations certified by BVC.


ISO 22301 helps organizations, regardless of size or sector of activity, to put in place the planning, controls, and structure to be resilient to unwanted events*and recover more swiftly when things go wrong.  With increasingly frequent and complex crises, emergencies and disasters caused by intentional and unintentional human acts, natural hazards and technical failures, many organizations decide to integrate business continuity into their risk management program as they mature.


Covering adaptive, proactive and reactive strategies in all phases before, during and after a disruptive incident requires the mobilization of operational and support functions throughout the organization.  Identifying critical functions, better understanding risk scale and impact, pre-planning improved decision-making, modelling and practicing responses to potential crisis scenarios are just some of the ways in which organizations benefit from implementing a BCMS.


ISO 22301 BCMS certification provides competitive advantage: embedding the BCMS to improve resilience and accelerate response time in event of crisis, reducing overall crisis impact by reducing downtime, protecting physical and information assets, continuing business critical operations and maintaining customer confidence.


Vice President of Certification, Sebastien Fox quotes: “As extreme weather events, power failures, terrorism and cyber-attacks increase in frequency and severity there is a growing realization that any organization without a business continuity plan can be at serious risk. This latest accreditation adds to Bureau Veritas Certification’s suite of risk management certification services to help reputable organizations large and small up and down supply chains to prove to their clients and suppliers that they can stay operational despite unexpected events.”

* The Business Continuity Institute’s Horizon Scan 2016 research identified the top risks to business continuity being cyber-attack (85%), data breach (80%) and unplanned IT and telecommunications outages (77%), with utility supply interruption (57%), terrorism (55%), security incidents (55%), adverse weather (55%) and supply chain disruption (50%) with the international group of resilience professionals they polled.  The joint Forrester and Disaster Recovery Journal research into the state of business continuity preparedness also cites increased reliance on technology (43%) and the threat of cyber-attacks (40%) in the top three drivers of business continuity risk, adding organization complexity (42%).  Of the respondents 51% have implemented ISO 22301 as a framework for business continuity management, the ISO Survey 2015 shows that 3,133 organizations have certified that their BCMS complies with the standard.
