ANS is built on quality, reliability and security


ANS is pleased to announce that we have been certified to the international Business Continuity standard ISO22301. ISO 22301 defines a standard that provides a model for establishing, implementing, operating, maintaining and improving a Business Continuity Management System.

ANS currently has 400 customers in both the public and private sectors, including NHS Trusts and local government. By implementing the 22301 standard ANS will provide a model for supporting a comprehensive programme for business continuity, disaster prevention and total business recovery.

Peter Kay, Management Consultant at Peritus Management Consultants, said ‘The Business Continuity Management System is extremely well documented and effectively implemented’.

Paul Shannon, Chief Operating Officer at ANS, said, “This is excellent news for ANS and excellent news for our customers; the ISO certification is a reinforcement of the culture and standards that run through the business and in particular our attention to detail when it comes to maintaining ‘must not fail’ services to our Customers. We deal with large organisations and are responsible in many cases for their critical data; now that we are independently recognised for the successful implementation of comprehensive and effective Business Continuity management systems they can be absolutely sure that they are in safe hands.”
