Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company receives recognition for Organisational Resilience

Abu Dhabi-UAE: Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) today announced that it has received ISO 22301:2012 certification for its Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The recognition reinforces the company’s commitment to increasing organisational resilience.

As part of its ongoing quality journey, ADNEC has also aligned its Enterprise Risk Management System (ERMS) to the ISO 31000 standard.

Since 2012, the company has operated a BCMS that conforms to the UAE’s National Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) standard as well as to the ISO 22301 standard.

Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, Group CEO of ADNEC, said: “The ISO certification gives ADNEC’s local and international partners the assurance that they are working with an organisation that has implemented globally accredited processes to protect its business-critical activities and has the required plans in place to respond promptly to any business disruptions.”

Reiterating ADNEC’s vision of achieving operational excellence through the continued adoption of international best practices, he added: “Having confirmed its compliance with the ISO standard, ADNEC now seeks to integrate its BCMS with other management systems across the business. This system alignment aims to consolidate common resilience objectives, improve resource utilisation, and provide the management with a comprehensive and consistent view of the company’s performance across diverse areas.”

ADNEC’s BCMS conforms to the relevant laws and regulations as well as to the expectations of its customers. Identifying and protecting critical functions through interfacing with the company’s ERMS, the system covers key areas, including event sales and planning, as well as catering and production services. ADNEC has applied the same risk management principles to contingency plans that can be invoked should a disruption take place.

ADNEC’s sustained efforts in business continuity management received recognition in 2017, when it won the prestigious Abu Dhabi Award for Excellence in Government Performance (ADEAP) for its BCMS. Building on this success, the company upgraded its BCMS and obtained the ISO 22301:2012 certification in 2019, following an independent assessment of the system by an external certification body.
