ISO 22301:2012 is the international standard for business continuity management. Continuing operations in the event of a business disruption, either due to a major disaster or a minor incident, is a fundamental requirement for any organization. Ensuring business continuity has led to the development of continuity management as a recognized business discipline, and ISO 22301, through its requirements, ensures the consistency, credibility and viability of existing business continuity management programs.

By certifying the continuity of the organization's work and adaptability according to ISO 22301, confidence in senior management, board of directors, regulators and other interested parties will be inspired by the organization's MCA program showing best-accepted international practices.
