Business continuity information

BCM Legislations, Regulations, Standards and Good Practice

The BCI has published an updated version of its guide to business continuity legislation, regulation, standards and guidance around the world.

Although not completely comprehensive the guide is probably the best available currently.

The guide starts by listing current and projected international initiatives, particularly those supported by the International Standards Organization (ISO), The European Union (EU) and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.

Each entry is categorized into one of four headings:

Legislations: government laws which include aspects of business continuity management by name or are sufficiently similar in nature (disaster recovery, emergency response, crisis management) to be treated as BCM legislation. To be included in this category they must be legally enforceable legislation passed by a national, federal, state or provincial government.

Regulations: Mandatory rules or audited guidance documents from official regulatory bodies.

Standards: Official standards from national (and international) accredited standards bodies which relate to business continuity as a whole or to a specific related subset such as IT service continuity.

Good practice: Guidelines published as good (or best) practice by various authoritative bodies.
