BC 040103 Assessing Potential Business Impact of the Emergency

Assessments need to be made at various stages during the recovery process as to the potential scale of the emergency from a business perspective. During the Disaster Recovery Process, these will include a preliminary damage assessment. The initial assessments will normally be carried out by the Disaster Recovery Team who may call on other specialists to help them with this process as appropriate.

The assessments will be based on the particular circumstances applying and the following five point scale may be considered appropriate.
