Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BKK): manual of corporate planning for a pandemic
The Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance has published its manual of corporate planning for a pandemic (“Handbuch Betriebliche Pandemieplanung”) on its website. It aims to help interested companies. The manual is not a pandemic plan. It is intended to advise firms that want to draw up their own pandemic plan. The great variety of sectors, products and services, customers and suppliers, plus corporate structures and sizes, demands individual plans in each case. The manual therefore functions as a guide with checklists containing as many points as possible that a company should consider when drawing up its plans. The manual can be downloaded from the BBK’s internet pages (in German).
