1 CSA Z1600 Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs Presented by: John Lindsay, Brandon University Department of Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies and Z1600 Technical Committee member Developed by: Ron Meyers, Canadian Standards Association
2 Presentation Disclaimer Presented by John Lindsay, Brandon University Department of Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies Z1600 Technical Committee member Developed by Ron Meyers, Canadian Standards Association Z1600 Technical Committee Advisor The Z1600 Standard on Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs was developed over two years by a committee of 20+ people. Today s presentation covers their results and includes my personal commentary. Any errors or deviations from the final Standard are my fault and the credit for this excellent work rests with the CSA Committee.
3 Presentation Objectives CSA s activities in Emergency Management Scope / Purpose of the new CSA Z1600 Standard Harmonization with NFPA 1600 WHY? Outline of the Z1600 Draft Project schedule Implementation strategy Questions
4 CSA: Addressing Emergency Management / Security Understanding the Issues and Needs Soliciting feedback from Canadian Stakeholders Participating in the American Homeland Security Standards Panel (ANSI-HSSP) Member of the ISO/IEC/ITU Advisory Group on Security Participating on new ISO TC 223 Societal Security Committee Developing relationships and promoting CSA Government agencies (Provincial Emergency Management Organizations) EM & BC Organizations First Responder Groups Presentation at key conferences / workshops
5 Protection of First Responders Developing a new Standard to Protect First Responders from CBRN Events Funded by Department of National Defence - CRTI Working Jointly with the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) The Standard will specify requirements for protective equipment (clothing, respirator) used by First responders in CBRN events The Standard will provide guidance on the selection, use, maintenance, capabilities of the protective equipment Address interface / interoperability issues There is strong support from Canadian First Responder Groups
6 Developing a new Emergency Management & Business Continuity Standard, Z1600 Funded by Public Safety Canada High Level / Comprehensive / integrated Standard All Hazards - Risk Based Approach Provides a framework that identifies and assesses the probability and severity of risks on the entity and its environments Provides the benchmark to assess existing programs Provides reference to Canadian EM/BCP organizations and informational resources Reflects the convergence seen over the past 10 years of public and private sector planning efforts Bi-National Harmonization with NFPA
7 Committee Membership Matrix Categories Members shall represent the following categories on the basis of their predominant expertise in, knowledge of and familiarity with emergency management systems, policies and procedures. Consideration shall also be given to geographical representation across Canada: User(s) Interest Those who have and/or represent/implement interest(s) from industry First Responders Those who respond, or manage the response to emergencies Government / Regulatory Authority Bodies with policy or regulatory authority directly related to the emergency management. Service Professionals Those who are not associated with implementing, responding or setting policy

9 Why Harmonize with NFPA 1600? NFPA 1600 is a process-based international standard that identifies key functional areas and an overall strategy for emergency management and business continuity for both public and private sector entities Provides for a common language Incorporates a Risk Based - All Hazards approach Integrates emergency management and business continuity NFPA standards already widely accepted in Canada Strong Canadian representation on NFPA 1600 Harmonized approach will facilitate compliance Recognized as preferred standard in the U.S. Proposed as a potential base for ISO standard
10 Gaining Recognition U.S. (NFPA 1600) Adoption as a US Homeland Security standard Support and endorsement following the 9/11 Commission inquiry EMAP utilizes NFPA 1600 to audit public sector organizations Canada Support from Public Safety Canada Support from Provincial / Municipal emergency management organizations Many Canadian organizations already using NFPA 1600
11 What does Harmonization mean? Substantially the same in Technical Content / Scope / Intent & Purpose Can vary in style / format / wording Can have Canadian deviations to reflect differences in: governmental / regulatory system & requirements Terminology & definitions used by Canadian Stakeholders Specific Canadian industry needs / requirements
12 Harmonization in Practice The practical implication of harmonization is that an emergency management or business continuity program developed to meet the requirements of one standard will also meet the requirements of the other standard. Therefore existing NFPA 1600-based programs should meet the CSA Z1600 standard. Currently the two standards are slightly out of step due to their approval timelines.
13 Using the NFPA 1600 Standard as the base for the Canadian Standard Key Objectives: Develop unique Canadian requirements where appropriate Involve relevant stakeholders from Public and Private sectors. Align with government / regulatory initiatives & policy direction Add value with additional guidance information and tools Develop and implement a strategy to promote the use and adoption of the Standard
14 Scope & Purpose of CSA Z1600 Establishes a common set of criteria for emergency management and business continuity programs Establishes the elements of a continuous improvement process to assess current programs or to develop, implement, and maintain a program that addresses the functions of prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery The program may consider the functions of prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery independently or in combinations
15 Application The Standard will apply to both public and private sector programs. It is important to have a consistent / harmonized approach between public sector and private sector organizations. Key focus on the Private sector to provide resources and tools to assist and encourage compliance to the standard.
