We certify systems of societal security
The UNE-ISO 22320 international standard was created to help organisations to act in the best possible way when facing any type of emergency (crisis, interruptions and disasters).

Therefore, all the parts involved must be guided in order to prepare and implement effective responses in case of emergency. This international standard allows the organisations involved to operate at an optimal joint effectiveness, minimising damages.
The UNE-ISO 22320 is applicable to any organisation, whether private, public, governmental or not-for-profit. More specifically, the certification can be obtained by those organisations involved in preparing for or providing response to incidents at international, national, regional or local level.
This includes organisations in charge of preventing incidents, developing coordination plans, developing information and communication systems, communicating with the public, etc.
