ISO 22301 for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs)

It is not only large organisations that can be affected by unexpected disruptions.   Small companies face similar threats too.   No matter the size of your organisation, the capability to respond effectively and business risk management are more critical than ever before. That’s why ISO 22301 business continuity management systems has been designed to help you manage the risks that threaten the smooth running of your business and ensure its survival in the event of a disruption.   And we can show you how.   


Shaping ISO 22301 for SMEs

Small and medium-sized businesses that implement ISO 22301 can improve their resilience in the same way as larger organisations. We know that you may have tighter budgets and less time and resources to put the necessary business continuity management processes and business risk management in place. That’s why we provide packages that are tailored to your business and the threats you face. We can customise your package to include only the services you need – removing the unnecessary cost and complexity of implementing ISO 22301.

We can help you identify essential business functions and the ways in which they could be impacted by incidents. Let us show you how to protect critical functions and minimise the impact of disruptions. You’ll see how ISO 22301 can put you in a better position when competing for new business and improve supply chain resilience.  



Training courses to get you started in ISO 22301

We use accelerated learning techniques to make sure you fully understand business continuity management. And we put your learning into context with a blend of classroom teaching, workshops and interactive sessions about aviation safety and aviation management.

Why BSI?

The food industry impacts every person on the planet. Though what the world's population may eat may differ depending on the geography, wealth, age, gender and availability of goods, no other sector plays such a vital role in all of our day-today lives and culture. Economically, food represents 10% of global GDP (valued at US$48 trillion by the World Bank).

But the food sector also faces significant challenges. Each year, food-borne illness makes one in ten people ill and is the cause of death for millions around the world. Population growth projections and an increasing middle class suggest that the demand for food will increase 70% by 2050. And, consumers are increasingly conscious about what goes into their food, how it's made, its impact on ecosystems and where it comes from.

BSI believes the world deserves food that is safe, sustainable and socially responsible. We support the food sector by developing and publishing standards of best practice, supply chain solutions as well as training and certification to not only the most popular food safety standards, but other business improvement standards that work together to make organizations more resilient.

Working in 172 countries, we pride ourselves on the expertise, integrity and professionalism of our people. Our mission is to help our 80,000 clients, ranging from high-profile global brands to small local companies, survive and prosper in today's world.
