The International Standard ISO 22301 specifies requirements for setting up and managing an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS).

A BCMS emphasizes the importance of
  • understanding the organization's needs and the necessity for establishing business continuity management policy and objectives,
  • implementing and operating controls and measures for managing an organization's overall capability to manage disruptive incidents,
  • monitoring and reviewing the performance and effectiveness of the BCMS, and
  • continual improvement based on objective measurement.

A BCMS, like any other management system, has the following key components:

  • a) a policy;
  • b) people with defined responsibilities;
  • c) management processes relating to
  • - 1) policy,
    - 2) planning,
    - 3) implementation and operation,
    - 4) performance assessment,
    - 5) management review, and
    - 6) improvement;
  • d) documentation providing auditable evidence; and
  • e) any business continuity management processes relevant to the organization.

Business continuity contributes to a more resilient society. The wider community and the impact of the organization's environment on the organization and therefore other organizations may need to be involved in the recovery process.
