We have put significant effort into ensuring our ability to continue operations and maintain supply to customers in the event of any business interruption. Continuity and recovery (C&R) planning is as important as response planning for emergencies and crises. Our processes are in line with the business continuity management standard ISO 22301.
C&R Planning is implemented through a process known as MAPS
- Map the critical business processes to highlight key dependencies
- Analyze the business impact of undesirable consequences and develop strategies to counteract the predicted disruption
- Plan for continuity and recovery if the undesirable consequence arises
- Sustain the plans through testing and regular review
Plans have been developed for all key parts of the business that affect our ability to continue operations and maintain supply to customers.
Our aim is that Edwards is able to recover quickly and efficiently following a significant disruptive event.
