Business Continuity Policy

I purchased the Business Continuity Policy [ISO 22301 hoping it is going to help me move faster in BC Policy writing. But when I read your BC Policy template’s content, it is totally different than what is required by ISO22301 and far away from the recommendations of BCI experts. Why your BC Policy template does not stick to ISO22301 and BCI recommendations? Because I am bit lost with your BC policy template as I am missing the policy statement, definitions, compliance, consequences for Non-Compliance…. Your BC policy template is nuclear.

Considering the explicitly stated missing parts, please note that ISO 22301 does not require policy statements, definitions, compliance, and consequences for Non-Compliance. 

While we agree that such items could be considered, our templates are designed to fulfill the standard’s requirements with minimum overhead to minimize administrative effort to keep and maintain them.

In terms of policy, ISO 22301 clause 5.2.1 requires: alignment with the organization’s purpose, an approach to defining business continuity objectives, commitment to fulfilling legal requirements, and commitment to the continual improvement of the Business Continuity Management System.

In case you want to include such items in your own policy, you can schedule a meeting with one of our experts so he can help you develop them.
