In recognition of its commitment to adhering to the latest Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) standards and establishing robust business continuity strategies, Saudi Arabia’s Bahri was awarded the ISO 22301:2019 certification by the British Standards Institution (BSI) recently.
The company says this certification highlights the strength of Bahri’s business model as well as its dynamic crisis-response strategies, especially during the pandemic period, which enabled the company to ensure uninterrupted operations and demonstrate a high level of resilience amid challenging circumstances. The recognition also acknowledges Bahri’s efforts in 2021 to enhance the internal business continuity systems and capabilities across all its GCC offices.
CEO of Bahri, Eng. Abdullah Aldubaikhi, commented: “The ISO 22301:2019 certification signifies an important milestone in our continuous journey of enhancing business continuity. We thank BSI for acknowledging our organisational culture that focuses on achieving business continuity and sustainability regardless of uncertain circumstances and unprecedented challenges, delivering maximum value to our clients and partners.”
The accomplishment follows the roll-out of Bahri’s Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) across its Dubai, Riyadh, Dammam, Jeddah and Jubail offices over several months. This included the participation of over 100 employees in the identification and analysis of key business processes and the development of nearly 50 Business Continuity Plans (BCPs). Over 40 BCP tests and audits were conducted, and more than 300 employees were trained as part of the process, which also included the creation of a new Business Continuity & Resilience Committee to oversee the continual improvement and effective implementation of the BCMS.
The week-long intensive external audit conducted by BSI recommended Bahri for the ISO 22301:2019 certification with no items of non-conformance. Valid for three years, the certification covers all the business units of Bahri, including oil, chemicals, dry bulk, logistics, and ship management, as well as support services such as finance, IT, corporate services, strategy, internal audit, corporate secretariat and legal counsel, across all five GCC offices of the company.
