Business continuity plan to detail continuity arrangements required to ensure continuity in case of an incident.

The plan include recovery arrangements for all the critical functions and the resumption time objective based on associated risks.

A business continuity plan is essential for ISO 22301:2019 and can be used to provide evidence of risk-based approach for compliance to other standards such as ISO 9001:2015.

I have used this Business Continuity Plan (BCP) with a client who required to get certified to ISO 22301:2019 and found the template very useful. The V1 template references ER16 Business Continuity Risk Register which includes elements required by the latest version of the standard such as MTPD (maximum tolerable period of disruption), RTO (recovery time objective) and this plan also requires details of person responsible and also their alternate to be listed.
