Purpose of this presentation
  • Brief overview of BCM promotion duty
  • Rationale
  • Requirements and
  • Key messages
  • Progress on implementation
  • National work on BCM promotion

3
BCM promotion rationale
  • Building Community resilience
  • Helping businesses help themselves
  • Building stronger links with the business
    community
  • Local authorities well placed to promote BC

4
Scope of the duty awareness raising
  • Must provide generic advice and assistance to the
    business and voluntary sector communities at
    large
  • Messages (e.g.) risks, local civil protection
    arrangements, steps businesses can take
  • Means of communication websites, bulletins,
    public meetings, forums

5
Scope of the duty specific advice
  • May provide more detailed advice and assistance
    to individual organisations
  • Discretionary, not compulsory
  • Likely to involve company specific
    presentations, risk assessment, plan development,
    exercising, training
  • May refer organisations to sources of competent
    and experienced business continuity consultants
  • Signposting, not definitive recommendations

6
Key messages in the guidance
  • Focus on the needs of businesses
  • Identify and engage other partners
  • Within local authorities
  • Other local responders
  • Other public sector partners (e.g. RDAs, Business
    Links)
  • Representative groups and individual businesses

7
Progress on implementation
  • Significant progress made, but still a long way
    to go
  • 2/3 of local authorities have mechanisms to get
    generic messages to the business community at
    large
  • Most BCM promotion work is passive and one-way at
    this stage
  • But some excellent work underway
  • Greater scope for
  • Collaborative working
  • Learning from each other

    exercised them. However, 79 of those who did
    identified and remedied shortcoming as a result.
