UDC Receives ISO Certification for Business Continuity Management System

October 04, 2021 / News

United Development Company (UDC), a leading Qatari public shareholding company and master developer of The Pearl-Qatar and Gewan Island, has obtained ISO 22301:2019 certification for developing and implementing a Business Continuity Management System conforming to internationally recognized standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

This international recognition was awarded to UDC by Alcumus – UK after a comprehensive and extensive external audit of all the Company’s critical services including management of engineering and construction activities, management of residential, retail, and common areas, community services as well as maintenance of all commercial and residential infrastructure, facilities, buildings, and assets owned, and maintained by UDC.

This makes UDC the first developer and The Pearl-Qatar the first community in Qatar to be certified for implementing strong Business Continuity Management systems and strategies with a comprehensive approach to resilience enabling update, control, and deployment of effective plans, as well as accounting for contingencies, capabilities, and business needs to deal with disruptive incidents while continuing to operate essential functions.

This certification is a testament to UDC’s commitment to operational excellence and resilience in the face of unprecedented crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and reflects the company’s capability to efficiently manage business interruption, disaster, and recovery, while maintaining The Pearl-Qatar’s position as a leading destination for a premium lifestyle.

While UDC has begun the implementation process of our Business Continuity Management System back in 2017, receiving the ISO accreditation is a further guarantee that residents, customers, and business partners can rely on UDC to stay functional even in times of crisis.

UDC is a leading Qatari public shareholding company with a mission to identify and invest in long-term projects contributing to Qatar’s growth and providing shareholder value. UDC activities cover a multitude of vital investment sectors including real-estate development, property management, infrastructure, and utilities, maritime and hospitality related businesses.
