| How Long does it take to build a BCMS?
To develop an ISO 22301:2012 Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) the documentation can take from one month to several months. one of the critical factors is the business agreeing on the control and sign off of the management system.
With this in mind we try to assist and alleviate as much of the worry as possible, by utilising previous work on an BCMS from other companies. Any work carried out on the management system is usually prepared using your existing policies and procedures, however because we have developed many management systems, we can call upon our existing templates. This significantly speeds up the consultancy process and allows a company to gain further assurance.
The end-costs of our consultancy frequently prove to be a nice surprise, due in some part to ParkinsonHowe coordinating with you, but working independently of day-to-day business decisions.
