Facility management systems

What is ISO 41001 and why is it important?

ISO 41001 is an international standard for facilities management introduced in 2018. After staffing costs, the biggest expense for most public and private sector organisations is the maintenance and upkeep of the workplace. The ISO 41001 standard was designed to help organisations implement the highest standards of facilities management to reduce costs and boost efficiency.

ISO 41001 focuses on several areas, including:

  • Procurement
  • Operations
  • Maintenance
  • Catering
  • Technology
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Energy

Based on a strategic, tactical and operational approach, the standard provides a common platform, which can be used across all sectors. ISO 41001 is applicable to all organisations or parts of organisations, whether public or private sector, and regardless of the type, size and nature of the organisation or its geographical location. It is designed both for organisations which manage their own facilities, as well as providers which manage facilities for other companies.
