Business Continuity Homepage
We set the policy and direction for the BBC's emergency planning and response, provide the specialist advice, knowledge and training across the BBC on how to plan for and respond to emergencies.
We rehearse the BBC's Director General and senior teams in responding to emergencies, and liaise with the UK authorities responsible for handling national emergencies.
We also provide Business Continuity sign-off for the BBC's new investments to make sure emergency arrangements and back-up are considered from the start of any new project.
When incidents happen we rely on our team of volunteers to come and help us. We have volunteers from all over the organisation. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or want more information about business continuity then please contact us (see link to Business Continuity Contacts below).
This toolkit is designed to make Business Continuity easier for you to implement. It includes advice, suggestions & templates. For more information, please contact your Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Team (BCDRT) representative for your area or contact the Business Continuity Unit.
