Bureau Veritas Certification (BVC) has achieved accreditation to international management systems ISO 22301: 2012 from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) through Bureau Veritas Certification Holding SAS, UK Branch. This independent recognition for Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS) certification enhances the credibility of organizations certified by BVC.

ISO 22301 helps organizations, regardless of size or sector of activity, to put in place the planning, controls, and structure to be resilient to unwanted events. With increasingly frequent and complex crises, emergencies and disasters caused by intentional and unintentional human acts, natural hazards and technical failures, many organizations decide to integrate business continuity into their risk management program as they mature.

Covering adaptive, proactive and reactive strategies in all phases before, during and after a disruptive incident requires the mobilization of operational and support functions throughout the organization. Identifying critical functions, better understanding risk scale and impact, pre-planning improved decision-making, modeling and practicing responses to potential crisis.

ISO 22301 BCMS certification provides competitive advantage: embedding the BCMS to improve resilience and accelerate response time in downtime, protecting physical and information assets, continuing business critical operations and maintaining customer confidence.

Vice President of Certification, Sebastien Fox Quotes: "As extreme weather events, power failures, terrorism and cyber-attacks increase in frequency and severity there is a growing realization that a business continuity plan can be at serious risk. This latest accreditation adds to Bureau Veritas Certification's suite of risk management certification services to help reputable organizations broad and small up and down supply chains to prove their customers'
