Detail of outcome
Summary of consultation responses and the final guide, drawn up using consultation feedback.
The Critical Infrastructure Resilience Programme has published for consultation the guide – Keeping the country running: natural hazards and infrastructure.
About the guide
This guide has been developed in response to an earlier consultation from 2009 to 2010 on the Strategic Framework and Policy Statement for Critical Infrastructure.
The guide will support infrastructure owners and operators, emergency responders, industry groups, regulators, and government departments, and help them work together to improve the resilience of critical infrastructure and essential services. The guide provides advice on:
- identifying and assessing risks from natural hazards
- standards of resilience
- business continuity and corporate governance
- guidance for economic regulated sectors
- information sharing, and
- understanding interdependencies
The purpose of this consultation is to seek wider views from government, regulators, industry groups, infrastructure owners and emergency responders. We would particularly like to hear views on the practicality of the guidance contained within the guide and any opportunities and barriers to implementation.
The guide provides information and advice. It is not mandatory.
The consultation will run for a period of 8 weeks. We will consider responses received by noon on Friday 6 May 2011.
Consultation questions are included in the guide. We invite responses to these questions, supporting evidence and any issues that require further consideration by the Programme.
Details on how to respond are included in the front of the guide.
