ISO 55001 Certification
Asset Management

Manage business assets across their life cycle, from acquisition to decommission.

All organisations have assets. These can be physical, such as vehicles, buildings and equipment, or intangible, such as your brand or intellectual property. Such assets have a value to your business and the ISO 55001 standard helps you protect and enhance that value.

WHAT IS ISO 55001?

The ISO 55001 standard provides the framework for a structured Asset Management System. This will enable you to manage your business assets across their life cycle, from acquisition to decommission. The system provides an efficient way to control the risks and costs associated with asset ownership, while supporting continual improvement and value creation.

The Standard builds on the Publicly Available Specification 55 (PAS 55), which the Institute of Asset Management (IAM) developed in the UK. The PAS 55 approach has a proven record of success in the utility (water, electric and gas) industries. Now the ISO 55001 standard enables other sectors to benefit from a similarly robust approach to asset management.

The ISO 55001 Asset Management System will equip you with an industry best practice approach to managing assets. It will provide you with a common language for communicating the value of assets to financial stakeholders, such as investors, credit agencies, bondholders and insurers.

THE BENEFITS OF ISO 55001

Here are the top benefits of using the ISO 55001 framework:

  1. Improved financial performance – The ISO 55001 Asset Management System can improve your return on investment by managing expenditure, driving down costs and protecting asset values

  2. Improved risk management – The framework’s structured reviews enable you to give your managers accurate information on assets. This will improve operational efficiency and effectiveness while reducing the risks of asset ownership

  3. Standardised reporting – ISO 55001 enables your organisation to compare its performance with other industries, in the public and private sectors, to ensure you are implementing best practice

  4. Enhanced reputation – Implementing ISO 55001 will ensure your company complies with its legal obligations and protects its assets, increasing customer satisfaction and stakeholder confidence

  5. Strengthened business growth – This structured and coordinated asset management system will help you develop clear plans that everyone understands and can support, so driving process improvements across your organisation

  6. Enhanced environmental performance – Through improved asset management, you will improve business sustainability and meet the expectations of your stakeholders for economic performance and social responsibility

THE REQUIREMENTS OF ISO 55001

The ISO 55001 standard uses a structure of ten clauses called Annex SL which, roughly grouped together, cover four key areas:

  1. Asset management – the processes your business must follow to run a successful Asset Management System that follows your assets, physical or intangible, throughout their life-cycle

  2. Management Responsibility – the areas your management team need to focus on, be involved with and be accountable for

  3. Resource Management – how resources such as people, infrastructure and facilities must be assigned to ensure the best possible performance

  4. Measurement, Analysis and Improvement – how you can determine if your Asset Management System is working as expected, facilitating the continual improvement of your system
