Emgas achieves ISO 22301 certfication
Benchmark is used to measure business preparedness in face of disruption
Emirates Gas (EMGAS), a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), has achieved the ISO 22301 certification, a global benchmark that measures business preparedness in the face of disruptions.
EMGAS is one of few companies in the oil and gas sector to be recognised for the adoption of international standards for Business Continuity Management and is the first ENOC entity to achieve this certification.
Its risk management system provides strategic and tactical capabilities to plan for and respond to incidents or events that may critically disrupt business operations.
“As an entity born in the dynamic, cosmopolitan and visionary city of Dubai, EMGAS is accustomed to the always-on business environment. Ensuring that customers’ needs are fulfilled, no matter the time, circumstance or weather is what contributes to EMGAS’s success, and the ISO 22301 accreditation is a testament to our ability to address all challenges, be it natural or unnatural,” said Zaid Alqufaidi, managing director, ENOC Marketing.
“For a company that fuels households and key industrial and commercial establishments across several regions, the adoption of ISO 22301 standards also ensures that we have the systems and procedures and people with high level of competency in place, capable of handling unforeseen incidents, events or issues that could potentially disrupt business,” he added.
