Business Continuity Management
|Publication Date:||3 March 2018|
The BCM Framework spans all route business and corporate / group support functions, with the purpose of supporting the maintenance of the timetable.
Network Rail Infrastructure Limited (Network Rail) is committed to implementing and maintaining a comprehensive Business Continuity Management (BCM) Framework which improves the organisation's resilience, safeguards business operations against threats and enables the delivery of an effective response and recovery capability for any significant business disruption. With the BCM Framework, Network Rail aims to maintain its core role of delivering the effective and safe operation of the train timetable at all times.
This standard is aligned to BS ISO 22301:2012 and BS EN ISO 22313:2014, and sets out a principles-based approach for effective BCM to enable:
a) the effective and consistent identification of organisational priorities, asset criticality, and the risks they face;
b) appropriate strategies and plans to be developed to manage disruption and restoration of services within the organisation's risk appetite; and
c) the effective governance and assurance of BCM, and consideration of BCM in the wider management and strategy decisions of Network Rail.
