URGENT | Review of ISO 22301:2012 and ISO 22313:2012 – have your say!BSI Survey | Revision of ISO 22301 & 22313 | Business Continuity

 

For standards to remain relevant and keep up with the needs of industry they need to be reviewed and updated on a regular basis and after five years the time has come for the International Standards for business continuity management to be put under the spotlight to examine whether there are any revisions or amendments required.

As part of this process we are seeking the views from the community of standards users, from auditors and those who are certified, to those who align to it. This is your chance to help ensure that both the standard specification for ISO 22301 and the guidance available in ISO 22313 are delivering what is needed for stakeholders.

Please click on this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ISO-22301-17 and take the short survey to assist us with understanding the appetite for amendments and revision. The survey should take less than 10 minutes and will close on the 29th August 2017.

BSI Organizational Resilience Standard BS 65000 DPC - comment now

BS 65000 Organization Resilience Standard
 
For the past few years one of the BSI committees has been working to develop a guidance standard that can be used by organisations to better direct, inform and support their Organizations and positively impact on its resilience.
 
The Standard known as “BS 65000:2014 Guidance on organizational resilience” has challenged the author group and been through extensive revisions before finally getting to the Public comments stage. 

6th BCM Conference from the BSI

in
 
BSI 6th BCM conferenceCLOSED
 
On the 6th September in London the BSI will be hosting the 2012 Business Continuity Management Conference.  This will be the sixth of these annual events and this years event is titled "ISO 22301 and Beyond" 
 
Through this conference the BSI is giving you the chance to get behind the scenes of ISO 22301 and ISO 22313 standard developments to discover why they are needed and what this means for business continuity professionals worldwide.
 

Business Continuity - BS 25999, ISO 22301 and ISO 22313

 
Click to visit the BSI
In May 2012, the International Standardization Organization (ISO) published ISO 22301 – Business continuity management systems – Requirements.  Although this standard was long in the making the response has been very positive - and with the promise of ISO 22313 – Business continuity management – Guidance – before the end of this year, it seems it was worth the wait.  
 
ISO 22301 blends the requirements from several national standards, including those from the USA, Japan, Singapore, Canada and Australia.  The similarity with BS 25999-2, however, is most evident.  A comparison of the BS and ISO standards reveals little difference in the requirements.  And in Clause 8 of the ISO, where the business continuity programme requirements reside, the text is identical in many places.
 

ISO 22301 Business Continuity Standard published

 
BSI Shop - ISO 22301 purchase and download The new international standard ISO 22301 for Business Continuity has now been published and can be purchased and immediately downloaded from the BSI Shop HERE.
 
This ISO standard builds on one of the most successful management standards ever created by the BSI, BS 25999 that delivered both the guidance and requirements aspects needed to create Continuity and Build resilience. 
 
ISO 22301 is the requirements specification that sets out the details that should feature in your business continuity management programme to achieve recognised good practice. The associated guidance documents, ISO 22313, are currently in draft production and will be available later in the year or in early 2013.
 
For those who have already implementated or aligned with the leading national standards (such as BS 25999, the US version BCM.01 from ASIS and the BSI or SPC.01 the general framework for example) the general approach by the ISO will appear very familiar.
 
Most organisations will be able to effect a 'relatively' straightforward transition to ISO 22301- through a transition period - with most of the work being concentrated on the development of the BCMS process documentation.
 

ISO Business Continuity Standard 22301 approved

 
The ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management System (Requirements) Standard has been approved by vote this week by the ISO Technical Committee (TC223).
 
Through this vote the way is now clear for the full publication of the Standard that we would expect to be available for purchase from the BSI and others in the early summer. 
 
Users of the British Standard BS 25999 will continue to be certified, at least until the expiration date, but is is likely that many will choose to adopt this the new Global Standard.

The full name for the standard is ANSI/ASIS/BSI BCM.01:2010, Business Continuity

Dr Marc Siegel

Management Systems - Requirements with Guidance for Use (Joint ASIS International and British Standards Institute (BSI) Standard) and whilst a mouthful it reflects the very close collaboration throughout the whole development process between ASIS and the BSI.  This approach led to a multi-national team being involved with committee formed responsible for the development being co-chaired by Dr Marc Siegel (US) and Kevin Brear (UK) and that also included Russell Price from the Continuity Forum.

 

BSI announces PD25111 - The Human Aspects of Business Continuity

 

The BSI has released the latest guidance enhancing BS 25999, the British Standard for business continuity management. The new published document focuses on the human aspects of business continuity and provides specific guidance on how to address the human factors within the planning cycle. The new document is referenced as  PD25111 and has been created by a Working Group comprising many of the same advisory team that developed BS 25999.

 

The guidance in PD25111 provides many of the answers needed to how an organisation can address “people issues" who are involved or affected by a disruption and further adds to the materials available to organisations developing business continuity.
