Optimise your asset performance strategy

What is ISO 55001 and who does it help?

ISO 55001 is the international standard for asset management systems. It is designed to give you a standardised and repeatable framework to monitor and maintain assets. An ineffective or non-existent asset management system can cost businesses millions of dollars per year, as assets are lost, underutilised, break or get damaged. Improving asset management system processes can reduce such unnecessary expenses and boost your bottom line.

Asset management systems are valuable to any organisation that owns or manages assets, although it can be especially useful in industries such as:

  • Manufacturing
  • Logistics and distribution
  • Oil and gas
  • Utilities
  • Facilities and property management
  • Construction

Why is ISO 55001 beneficial to your organisation?

By managing the associated risks and costs of asset ownership, ISO 55001 aims to optimise the availability and profitability of your assets throughout their lifecycle.
Asset management system strategies can have a positive influence on operations, design, staff performance and equipment productivity and lifecycle costs. Ultimately, ISO 55001 aims to realise the value from every asset.

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.
