ISO 55001 – ASSET MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

ISO 55001 Asset Management System (AMS)

What is ISO 55001?

In many industry sectors, the way you manage, maintain and finance your assets can make or break the company. Assets include everything from physical property such as vehicles, hand tools and CNC machines to intangibles such as financial reserves, human capital and intellectual property.

ISO 55001 helps you manage the entire lifecycle of your assets to ensure they deliver maximum value to the business. As with all ISO standards, the management of risk is at the heart of the system, so that your organisation can be more confident about future performance.

There are certain industry sectors for which ISO 55001 is particularly appealing. For example, facilities management and property developers; oil and gas and utilities; construction; manufacturing; transport and distribution all stand to gain from ISO 55001. The system helps introduce greater compliance, more reliability, lower ownership and operating costs and increased transparency if things go wrong.

ISO 55001 helps you manage risk and maximise both day-to-day and long term operational and financial performance.

Why choose ISO 55001?

Many organisations seek ISO 55001 to complement other ISO standards such as ISO 9001 Quality ManagementISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety and ISO 14001 Environmental Management.

Fortunately, all these standards are based on the Annex SL structure which means the systems share common elements and integrate neatly. This means that the development and maintenance of your Asset Management System can be done very efficiently.

Any organisation looking to maximise operational and financial performance can benefit from an ISO 55001 certified Asset Management System.

Make Sure Your ISO 55001 Certificate is UKAS Accredited

Not all certificates are equal. You need to make sure your certificate is issued by a body that has been accredited by the government-recognised United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

A UKAS accredited certification body like ISOQAR undergoes regular rigorous inspections by UKAS to check we are operating to the highest standards.

This means that when you hold a certificate from a UKAS accredited body, you can be sure it’s more meaningful. Certificates that are issued by bodies which are not UKAS accredited are often not accepted.

UKAS accredited certificates are accepted across the world as evidence that you meet global standards of best practice.
