ISO 41000: an international standard for Facilities Management (in development)
Date: 16 April 2017
Facilities managers have responsibilities for providing, maintaining and developing many services. These range from property strategy, space management and communications infrastructure to building maintenance, administration and contract management. Facilities management includes space, infrastructure, people and organization.
A new international standard for facilities management has been formally approved to proceed into development by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). ISO 41000 will be a ‘Management System Standard’ for Facilities Management.
As a strategic tool and set of guidelines, the standard will set out an accredited structure and framework as well as formal organisational processes. It will also address the need for key skills and competencies. The standard will provide appropriate guidance in a similar manner as the Quality, Occupational Safety and Health and Environmental Management System Standards that already exist.
Global Verification is at the forefront when it comes to taking part in the development of new ISO standards.
