TECOM Investments has been recognised for its business continuity management system by DNV GL, having achieved ISO 22301:2012 certification.

"We are delighted to have been accredited with this standard in recognition of our tireless commitment to business excellence and ensuring continuity for all of our employees and business partners," said Hamad Huraiz, COO at TECOM Investments.

"In an organisation of our size, it is imperative that we have the right systems in place to support the ongoing development of our partners so that we can continue to play an effective role in the development of the economy. This accreditation is part of a long term process in which we have received a number of similar accreditations all geared to supporting performance enhancement."

TECOM said that the ISO certification had provided it with a number of benefits, including assurance of established continuity practices; competitive edge; enhanced stakeholder satisfaction; enhanced investor and shareholder confidence; mature corporate governance; safety of assets; and reinforced benchmarking to global standards.
