Successful businesses are ones who manage their assets to achieve a desired operational performance and profitability. ISO 55001 provides a framework for an asset management system that assists businesses with proactively managing the lifecycle of assets from acquisition to decommissioning. Managing the risks and costs associated with assets and maintaining a beneficial balance between input invested in assets and output achieved for your business can be easily managed with an asset management system.
ISO 55001 is an internationally recognised standard for achieving an integrated management system for asset management.
Having grown out of PAS 55, ISO 55001 is being widely adopted in utilities, transport, mining, process and manufacturing industries worldwide. ISO 55001 is the blueprint for any organisation focused on management and control of assets and in maximizing their value.
