    Has anyone been certified without having these plans in place?

    As the new standard promotes risk management, I would assume having these processes to be mandatory but maybe not all CB's take risk assessment to that level.

    It's a best practice that all organizations should do anyway but I know not all do.

    There is a requirement to address contingency, but having a "process" isn't mandatory. Business Continuity and Disaster recovery plans can't be mandated in a product quality environment, unless it comes from a customer.

    At this point they are generating OFIs. It is possible many have something in place but don't know it. Many IT managers have a disaster recovery plan for their networks and data, but top managers seldom have much awareness about it.
