other drivers for a plan
We need to have a business continuity plan in place to meet our regulatory requirements as a pharmaceutical manufacturer.
In effect, it's a legal requirement for our regulatory affairs manager to be able to keep working should our office lose normal comms, IT etc.
To all intents, it's our IT disaster plan. Though I must admit I haven't documented thoroughly. I wont comment on whether we would have any plan if there wasn't the threat of an inspection by the regulator.
