ISO 55001 Certification - Asset Management System

Optimize your asset performance strategy

About The ISO 55001:2014 Standard

ISO 55001:2014 (Asset management — Management systems — Requirements) is the international standard for asset management systems. Designed to be compatible with other ISO management system standards, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001, ISO 55001 provides a framework to monitor and maintain assets. ISO 55001 aims to optimize the availability and profitability of your assets throughout their lifecycle by managing the associated risks and costs of asset ownership.

The Importance of an Asset Management System

Asset management system strategies can have a positive influence on operations, design, staff performance and equipment productivity and lifecycle costs. An ineffective or non-existent asset management system can cost businesses millions of dollars per year, as assets are lost, underutilized, break or get damaged. Improving asset management system processes can reduce such unnecessary expenses and boost your bottom line.

Benefits of ISO 55001 certification include:

  • Reduce costs and unlock asset value
    Establish a lifecycle asset management system that helps you to make well-informed decisions.
  • Gain a competitive advantage
    Improve customer satisfaction through more effective asset management systems and service delivery
  • Increase business transparency
    Create a comprehensive audit trail for what is done, when and why.
  • Support business growth
    Align initiatives, processes, resources and functional contributions.
