It is important that all key events during the disaster recovery phase are recorded. An event log should be maintained by the leader of the Disaster Recovery Team. This Event Log should be started at the commencement of the emergency and a copy of the log passed on to the Business Recovery Team once the initial dangers have been controlled.
This section of the BCP should include a format for such an Event Log which can be easily maintained by the DRT leader. The format should include the date, time, title of the event, brief description of the event and outcomes. It should also include follow up action needed, as appropriate.
