Becoming ISO 22301 Certified With Critical Path

Step 1: Preparation

Preparing for ISO 22301 certification requires careful planning and thorough preparation.

We offer outsourced support, serving as your trusted consultant throughout the certification process.

Step 1: Preparation

Step 2: Documentation

The next step in achieving ISO 22301 certification is gathering the documentation that outlines your organisation's response to various unexpected events such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks, pandemics, and more. It is vital to adapt these documents to suit your specific business requirements. Our experienced team can assess your current documentation and develop tailored materials to fill any information gaps.

The primary objective of ISO 22301 is to enable organisations to minimise the impact of disruptions on operations, customers, and stakeholders. Our experienced team is dedicated to guiding you through implementing changes.
