NFPA 1600 2007 is NOW OBSOLETE. See ISO 22301 2012.

Introduction to the NFPA 1600 2007 Standard

The NFPA 1600 standard combines the best practices from three
separate fields: business continuity management, emergency
management, and disaster management. The result is a single
integrated approach. NFPA calls this a "Total Program Approach".
If you apply the NFPA 1600 Standard to Business Continuity
Management (
BCM), you will be applying the accumulated
wisdom and knowledge of experts from three important fields.

The purpose of the NFPA 1600 standard is to help you to:

  • Establish a new Business Continuity Program

  • Improve an existing Business Continuity Program

Introduction to Business Continuity Programs

A Business Continuity Program must:

  • Identify the impact that potential losses can
    have on the continuation of service delivery

  • Maintain effective service recovery
    plans, procedures, and strategies

  • Ensure that service delivery is continued
    even though serious losses have occurred

To ensure that service delivery continues without
interruption, a Business Continuity Program must
develop a Business Continuity Plan
. Such a plan
should identify:

  • Contact lists that must be maintained

  • Stakeholders that must be notified

  • Alternative work sites that must be available

  • Time-sensitive applications that must be protected

  • Vital records that must be accessible

  • Processes that must be performed

  • Functions that must be carried out
