Press Releases

A certification to more offices, making it the 11th, including the four offices in Kansai
Toppan Forms passed extension and surveillance audits of the Business Continuity Management System (BCMS), acquiring registration certification authorized by JIPDEC and UKAS.

February 9, 2011

The Toppan Forms Group, an information management solution provider, acquired the Business Continuity Management System (BS25999-2:2007) in February 2010. The group took an extension audit in December 2010 and acquired registration certification from SGS Japan Inc. under the authorization of the Japan Institute for the Promotion of Digital Economy and Community (JIPDEC) and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Business within the scope of this certification concerns data print service (DPS) in which Toppan Forms takes orders for the issuance of different types of notifications on consignment. Last year, six offices in the Tokyo metropolitan area were included in the scope of certified business. In addition, four Kansai offices and one metropolitan area office are now included in certified business, making 11 offices included within the certifications scope.

DPS business provided by the Toppan Forms Group must be operating even in times of disaster because of the importance of the notifications handled, requiring risk management 24-7. Measures must also be taken for early recovery if incidents occur to interrupt business. The Toppan Forms Group has acquired BS25999-2:2007 registration certification for six offices in the Tokyo metropolitan area. For this certification, the Toppan Forms Group assumed the risk of an epicentral earthquake, and has, in addition, been working to further strengthen organization for business continuity. Management has thus been extended to include Kansai offices, leading to the acquisition of further registration certification. Thanks to extending the offices within the scope of certification, the Toppan Forms Group has successfully established a basic structure that ensures measures for quick recovery based on close linkage between offices in the metropolitan area and Kansai.

The Toppan Forms Group continues extending businesses and offices to be included in certification, further strengthening business continuity.
