ISO has published a new Technical Specification for supply chain continuity. Entitled ‘Societal security -- Business continuity management systems -- Guidelines for supply chain continuity,’ ISO/TS 22318:2015 provides guidance on ‘methods for understanding and extending the principles of BCM embodied in ISO 22301 and ISO 22313 to the management of supplier relationships’.

ISO/TS 22318:2015 is applicable to all sizes and types of organizations and relates to the supply of products and services, both internally and externally. It specifically considers ‘the issues faced by an organization which needs continuity of supply of products and services to protect its business activities or processes, and the continuity strategies for current suppliers within supply chains, which can be used to mitigate the impact of disruption.’
