ISO 55001Asset 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.
The ISO 55001 standard provides the framework for a structured Asset Management System. This will enable you to manage your business assets across their lifecycle, 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
How businesses have benefitted from Standards
The auditor was excellent throughout this process and was very helpful, not just on the day of the audit but afterwards.Andrew Senior, Health and Safety Manager

How to get ISO 55001
Our expert consultants will work with you and your business to make the certification process as straightforward as possible. This includes helping you make any necessary improvements to your business processes.
Our 3-stage certification process ensures you get the help you need at every step. We can even create your Asset Management System manual for you – saving you time and money.
Once you have achieved ISO 55001 certification, you will need to pass an audit each year. This will ensure your business continues to benefit from complying with the standard. Your first audit will happen one year after you receive your ISO 55001 certificate.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
An Auditor must now visit your Organisation to check that the documented processes are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be awarded your certification.
How much does an ISO 55001 cost?
The cost of certification depends on several factors. These include your sector, annual turnover, and number of employees. We will also need to know if you require industry specific accreditation (such as ASCB or UKAS).
However, QMS is committed to providing a cost-effective route to ISO 55001 certification. That’s why we focus on making the process straightforward. We will save you money because, instead of creating complex document trails, we will build an Asset Management System that works for you.
