The African Alliance Insurance Plc has been recertified with the ISO 22301 for Business Continuity Management (BCM) by the Professional Evaluation and Certification Board (PECB).

The certification was given to the company as a result of its commitment to its stakeholders and customers.

The certification was first issued to the company in 2020 by the PECB which signified that African Alliance Insurance met all the requirements for Business Continuity Management.

Africa Alliance Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Joyce Ojemudia, said the recertification further confirmed African Alliance’s ability to deliver in every circumstance and its commitment to upholding its promise to be with stakeholders for life.

“For us at African Alliance, and our priority is to continue to fulfil our stated obligations to our stakeholders and show our customers that our promise to be with them for life is to be trusted,

“I appreciate the continued efforts of the entire BCM team led by our Executive Director, Finance, Olabisi Adekola and ably managed by the BCM Manager, Patrick Eka-Iloma. Without them, these efforts would have come to naught,” said Ojemudia.

Also speaking, Africa Alliance Brand, Media and Communications Manager, Bankole Banjo, said for over 60 years, the company, has taken its responsibility of being Nigeria’s foremost life insurer .

He said the recertification of the ISO 22301 accreditation further assures that the company will not become complacent.

The ISO 22301:2012 is a globally recognised Business Continuity management standard developed and published by the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO).

The standard provides a model that organisations of all types and sizes can use in building an effective Business Continuity System. ISO 22301 specifies the requirements for a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of and ensure a business recovers from disruptive incidents.
