The Saudi Export Development Authority (Saudi Exports) has achieved the “ISO 22301: 2019 business continuity management system (BCMS)” certificate from “Q.C.B ITALIA,” a quality certification bureau, as a result of applying the necessary criteria to obtain this certificate.
The main criteria for obtaining the certificate are identifying risks to ensure business continuity, setting appropriate controls for their management, and adopting a preventive approach to reduce the impact of accidents to the lowest level.
This certification will reflect positively on the authority’s work and activities, and will have a significant impact on enhancing its position and the reliability of its performance with its clients at the local, regional and global level.
The authority stated that this international recognition constitutes an important addition to the series of achievements it has earned since its inception in 2013. This certificate is also the third global recognition achieved by the authority in terms of implementing international quality standards.
It previously obtained the “ISO 20000-1:2018 SMS” certificate, and the “ISO 27001: 2013 ISMS” certificate, both of which contribute to achieving the rational leadership’s directions towards improving the reputation and prestige of national institutions and companies worldwide.
It is worth mentioning that the authority has taken many initiatives that contributed to obtaining the ISO certificate for business continuity, such as the establishment of a system of proactive measures to confront accidents that would cause the interruption of operations, ensure the continuity of basic business during times of crisis, and reduce downtime to the lowest level when exposed to any technical accident.
