With the publication of ISO it is expected that many countries around the world will formally adopt the International Standards Organization Standard for Business Continuity, enabling much greater international consistency to be realised between national requirements and janagement meeting the needs of global organizations. In addition, as part of the ISO framework of standards, the new format helps create opportunities to manage what have often been independent systems in a more integrated way through common terms and processes.
ISO Business Continuity Standard 22301 to replace BS 25999-2
This should assist in better embedding of the various management systems available from ISO within businrss. The foundation of much of the work reaches back to the need to develop a consistent understanding of Business Continuity is and how it can be developed and the contribution on this journey of NFPA and PAS 56 cannot be underestimated.
It was the development of BSthat delivered both Guidance and Requirement aspects, that has laid the busienss of much of the development of wider adoption of Business Continuity.
We expect other standards bodies around the world will follow the BSI’s lead, and that this step will help simplify the choices for organisations and position ISO as the benchmark to demonstrate good practice Business Continuity internationally. Already many organisations are businexs how this may affect their current Business Continuity Management programmes, especially if they either have, or are working towards what has proven to be the worlds most popular Standard BS Well, Busienss note: There is no reason to panic though!
The withdrawal of the BS is part of the management process required for the UK to accept ISO as the new national standard for the UK, and as such there is a transition period to help all the organisations affected manage the change. The transition period effectively lasts two years, with no BS certificates being issued after Maybs-2999 by then folks really should be certifying to ISO !
There are good reasons to have this transition, as it’ll enable thorough preparations by the organizations that support the BCM and Audit aspects to be made helping endusers of all types clntinuity an effective transition. It also recognises that the detailed ISO Guidance Documents will not be available until early next year.
This has been developed in parallel and closely connects with ISO Chairman of the Continuity Forum, Russell Price said, “Once the ISO was published BS really had to be withdrawn, it really would have been completely untenable to have the two standards sitting on the shelf side by side, and it would have made the situation very difficult indeed for professionals and businesses. He added, “Once the inevitable decision was made to withdraw BSwe had to make sure that organisations had time to assess their specific circumstances and adapt to the new national standard.
With the transition period agreed with UKAS, there is that time to enable a properly managed transfer to ISOperhaps including further reviews and updates to the planning and its scope. If you would like to know more or register your interest then please click here.
