SS ISO 22301:2019 - Business Continuity Management System

ISO 22301 certification provides organizations a formal business continuity guideline that will allow organizations to operate during and following a disruption. With ISO 22301, organizations are able to minimize the impact to critical business functions, ensuring that they are still able to deliver their services or recover promptly.

ISO 22301 certification is applicable to all companies across any industry, particularly for those organizations operating in critical sectors where the ability to operate without any delay is important.
