ISO 22301 Certification for Business Continuity Management System awarded to Abu Dhabi Ports

Abu Dhabi, UAE – Aug 6, 2017:  Abu Dhabi Ports, the master developer, operator and manager of commercial and community ports within the emirate of Abu Dhabi, in addition to the Port of Fujairah, and Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), has been awarded the ISO 22301 certification for its Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). The certification is a business continuity management benchmark, recognising the effectiveness of the BCMS design and implementation thereof, to reduce the company’s risk exposure associated with emergencies and crisis management. 

Commenting on this achievement, Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Abu Dhabi Ports CEO said: “Abu Dhabi Ports is committed to adopting best practices in line with Abu Dhabi Government’s aim to achieve excellence across all its business units and service offerings. Achieving the ISO 22301, is an  important milestone, as it further showcases our capability to tackle situations at all stages including identifying potential threats, evaluating  their probable impact and developing capabilities  to minimise the influence of business disruption.”

Lloyds Register of Quality Assurance (LRQA) presented the ISO 22301 certificate to Abu Dhabi Ports’ CEO at the Abu Dhabi Ports headquarters.
Mr. AbdulKareem Al Masabi, Executive Vice President-Ports said: “Receiving the certification is a testament to Abu Dhabi Ports’ efforts to establish industry-leading risk assessment, prevention and management processes, which ensure operation continuity and critical services are being delivered under all circumstances, thereby allowing us to meet our obligations and commitments to all stakeholders.”

Earlier this year, Abu Dhabi Ports successfully completed a detailed crisis management practice scenario in cooperation with the Emergency and Crisis Management Team in Abu Dhabi alongside 12 government entities. The exercise tested the response time in dealing with an incident scenario involving the grounding of a vessel, and a subsequent oil spill that could have environmental repercussions on the port’s marine environment and simulation of business disruption. 

The ISO 22301 is a standard which aims to increase resilience when faced with an organisational threat. It is designed to help organisations enhance their capability to handle disruption and protect brand reputation when integrated with business planning. The programme also includes action plan rehearsals  which mean that, should the worst happen, the organisation's financial position is protected.
