BC 010105 Procedure for Approving BCP Content

There has to be a clear procedure for adoption and approval of the BCP. Updates and changes to the plan should also be included in this process. In some larger organisations it may be appropriate to set up a BCP Steering Committee with responsibility to oversee the whole process.

On each page of the Business Continuity Plan there is provision for recording the name of the person responsible for completing that page and the name of the person who reviewed that information certified that it is correct. This information should be recorded on the form before it is forwarded to the person authorised to approve the content.
