Functio will support you to develop a robust Business Continuity Management System and Business Continuity Plan in line with the requirements of ISO 22301 and will support you to gain Certification to ISO 22301 if desired.
A Business Continuity Management System prepares businesses for worst-case scenarios; be it IT outage, personnel or telecommunications incident, terrorism, inclement weather or pandemic. By implementing clear processes to ensure rapid recovery, this helps guarantee a consistent level of service to your customers and other stakeholders.
A Business Continuity Management System enables you to respond effectively and promptly based on the procedures that apply before, during and after the event. Implementing a Business Continuity plan within your organization means that you are prepared for the unexpected. A robust Business Continuity Plan will support your organisation to operate limiting the impact and losses from events as far as is reasonably practicable
Your Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) can be an independent system from any other ISO Certifications you have or can form part of a wider Integrated Management System. Your BCMS can also be certified to ISO 22301 if there is a tangible benefit to your business by doing this, but similarly the BCMS can be provided as an uncertified Management System in line with the requirements of ISO 22301.

- Business Continuity Objectives and Planning to achieve them
- Resources, Competence and Training in the BCMS
- Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment
- Business Continuity Strategies and Solutions
- Business Continuity Plans and Procedures
- Exercise Programme
