Axis Security achieves third international management standard

Axis Security, one of the UK’s leading security services suppliers, has been internationally recognised for its ability to proactively manage risks and mitigate threats that would disrupt critical business activity with the award of ISO 22301 for business continuity.

The accreditation specifies the requirements for a business’ management system to protect against anticipated and unanticipated events, including terrorist activity, adverse weather, labour strikes or blackouts, while ensuring it can continue to operate

David Mundell, Managing Director of Axis Security, says the standard is becoming an important requirement: “Customers are asking for ISO accreditation in tenders, and a number of industries including healthcare and financial services require business continuity planning.

“Having the accreditation sends a clear message to existing and potential clients that we have a resilient business, and it demonstrates that we have an effective response to any incidents,” he continues.

This latest accreditation is the third to be awarded to Axis Security, which includes quality management (ISO 9001) and environmental management (ISO 14001).
