DISCO Earns Certification under the BS25999-2:2007 Business Continuity Management System Standard

On December 17, 2008, DISCO Corporation (Headquarters: Ota-ku, Tokyo; President: Hitoshi Mizorogi) obtained certification under the BS25999-2:2007* Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) Standard, issued by the British Standards Institution (BSI). DISCO has thus become the first business in the Japanese semiconductor industry to earn this certification (according to the certification institute, SGS Japan).
DISCO began implementing active measures against natural disasters such as earthquakes and fires in 2003, putting our efforts into a system of prompt recovery and business continuity to ensure our ability to provide stable supply of products to customers in that event.
Acquiring BCMS standard certification is intended to further reassure our stakeholders and enable continual improvement in our business continuity management practices.

BCMS initial range of application
Production and supply of precision processing tools (processing dicing blades and grinding wheels)
-

Because precision processing tools are frequently-replaced consumables, any stoppage in their supply would have a major impact on production at customer factories. Therefore, these product items were chosen for the initial range of application.

In the future, we plan to expand the range of our BCMS compliance by degrees, aiming to steadily increase our level of business continuity, to be a company with whom customers feel confident doing business and where employees feel confident working.

BS25999-2:2007 is a standard written to ensure business continuity management (BCM). Its objective is to enable businesses to continue and quickly recover should a latent threat to an enterprise's business continuity (such as natural disasters, e.g., earthquakes or typhoons, as well as outbreaks of new strains of influenza or other infectious diseases, acts of terrorism, or system failures) become a reality. Even if the organization does not experience a serious incident (one that would disrupt business), establishing and operating a BCMS based on BS25999-2:2007 enables it to define its major business processes, as well as the impact to those processes in the event various threats become a reality. Such procedures would additionally increase organizational resiliency (ability to recover) when incidents do happen.
