In an emergency situation, normal authorisation procedures are often inadequate and too slow to fit the urgent circumstances, or the persons authorised to make fundamental decisions may be unavailable. Emergency authorisation processes need to be established to enable recovery work to proceed without unnecessary delays.
This section of the BCP should contain information on how these emergency procedures are to operate, who is authorised to do what, and in which circumstances. It is extremely important that these procedures are put in place and that recovery work and restoration of services proceed at the maximum speed.
