Today marked a world first for the automotive industry as Vauxhall Motors received the ISO22301 Business Continuity Planning certification.


This highly coveted accreditation from the British Standards Institute (BSI) moves Vauxhall into an exceptional position in the sector, having already achieved two significant awards – Britain’s Top Employer and Investors in People.


The certificate is awarded to organisations with rigorous measures and processes in place to ensure a continued supply in adverse situations, such as minor incidents or natural disasters. It perfectly reflects the high standard of responsibility and reliability Vauxhall places on its products and services.


Phil Millward, Human Resources Director, Vauxhall Motors, said: "The process of preparing for ISO22301 Certification has been comprehensive, detailed and robust. The team has devoted many hours to planning, coaching and driving successful implementation of the plan. I'm proud to say that everyone has joined with enthusiasm, resulting in this outstanding achievement. This brings yet another example of best practice to Vauxhall Motors."


James Taylor, Vauxhall’s Fleet Sales Director, added, "The certification allows Vauxhall to give its customers comfort and reassurance. Through the robust processes in place we can continue to provide product and service supply continuity in the unlikely event of an incident. As the first auto manufacturer to achieve this globally, it gives us a real competitive advantage."
