ICOR Launches Verification of ISO 22301 Self-Declaration of Conformity Process

How Closely is Your Organization's BCM Program Aligned to ISO 22301?

The International Consortium for Organizational Resilience (ICOR) is committed to increasing the resilience of organizations in an effort to increasing the resilience of communities world-wide.  As part of this commitment, ICOR has created a process to formally recognize an organization's Self-Declaration of Conformity to ISO 22301.  This process is intended to support and promote eventual third-party certification by providing organizations a tool to improve their Business Continuity Management (BCM) programs and to conform to ISO 22301 requirements.

The ICOR Self-Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) to ISO 22301 is available to organizations of all sizes globally.  It is a process where an organization declares formally that its Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) meets the requirements of ISO 22301:  Societal Security - Business Continuity Management Systems - Requirements.

One element of this process is the development of an ISO 22301 Maturity Model that organizations can use to self-assess the capability and maturity of their Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) using the International Standard ISO 22301 as a reference.

 

Determination of an ICOR verified Self-Declaration of Conformity

Determination of meeting the requirements is based on a combination of the following scores and criteria:

  1. Completion and submission of ISO 22301 Maturity Model with a minimum overall score of 2.5 with no single competency area scoring less than 2.0.  3.0 is a perfect score.
  2. Successful completion of Biographical Data and review by ISO 22301 Auditor
  3. Successful completion of BCMS Information and review by ISO 22301 Auditor
  4. Submission of Required Documents or "Proofs" and review by ISO 22301 Auditor

Upon successful completion of the online application (including completion of the ISO 22301 Maturity Model) your application will be evaluated by an ISO 22301 Lead Auditor with credentials earned from ICOR, BSI, or PECB.  Estimated time for evaluation is less than 30 days.  

If your application is verified, your organization's self-declaration of conformity will be listed on the ICOR SDoC webpage.  In addition, your organization will receive a certificate verifying your self-declaration and may use the ISO 22301 SDoC "mark" as evidence of the ICOR verification.  Verification is valid for 3 years.
