United Nations Secretariat Business Continuity Plan
A Policy Statement on Business Continuity Management (BCM) was adopted by the Senior Emergency
Policy Team (SEPT) at its meeting of 31 January 2008. It describes the aim of a Secretariat_wide business
continuity planning process, its scope and way forward. As mandated, all Secretariat Departments,
Offices Away from Headquarters (OAHs), and Regional Commissions must be able to maintain continuity of critical functions during and following a disaster and/or crisis event which impacts operations and therefore must have a Business Continuity Plan (BC Plan).
