The Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB) has recertified the ISO 22301 it first issued to African Alliance Insurance Plc for Business Continuity Management (BCM) last year.
The recertification was done after the completion of the recent audit on the leading insurance company in Nigeria. The insurer met all the requirements for BCM and will use the certification for another year.
This is part of the organisation’s unending commitment to its stakeholders and customers and further confirms its ability to deliver in every circumstance and our commitment to upholding its promise to be with stakeholders for life.
The Managing Director of African Alliance Insurance, Ms Joyce Ojemudia, while commenting on the development, stated that, “For us at African Alliance, our priority is to continue to fulfil our stated obligations to our stakeholders and show our customers that our promise to be with them for life is to be trusted.”
“I appreciate the continued efforts of the entire BCM team led by our Executive Director, Finance, Olabisi Adekola and ably managed by the BCM Manager, Patrick Eka-Iloma. Without them, these efforts would have come to naught,” she added.
On his part, the Brand, Media and Communications Manager of African Alliance, Mr Bankole Banjo, stated that, “For over 60 years, we have taken our responsibility of being Nigeria’s foremost life insurer seriously and the recertification of the ISO 22301 accreditation further assures that we will not become complacent. Our commitment is life long.”
The ISO 22301:2012 is a globally recognised BCM standard developed and published by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO).
This standard provides a model that organizations of all types and sizes can use in building an effective Business Continuity System.
It specifies the requirements for a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of and ensure a business recovers from disruptive incidents.
