ISO 55001 Asset Management

What is ISO 55001 Asset Management?

ISO 55001 Asset Management can be explained as a systematic process of planning, operating, maintaining, upgrading and replacing assets cost-effectively with minimum risk and at the expected levels of service, over the assets’ life cycle.

Key aspects of ISO 55001 Asset Management:

Leadership & Accountability: Management is responsible for the overall governance of assets and the management systems.

Planning: Determination of asset requirements, based on an assessment of both service delivery needs and the capability of the existing asset base to meet these needs.

Acquisition: Procurement of assets to meet an identified service need, including the assessment of procurement options.

Operation and maintenance: Management and use of an asset to deliver services including monitoring of assets, asset valuation, utilization and functionality, and information management.

Disposal: Treatment of an asset that has either reached the end of its useful life, is considered surplus, or is underperforming.

What is ISO 55001?

The new ISO 55001 standard was published in 2014, it is the first standard to implement the new ISO Annex SL framework making it easy to integrate into your existing standards.

ISO 55001 provides an organisation with a framework to proactively manage the life cycle of assets from the planning stage through to deployment and disposal/renewal. The system enables an organisation to manage the costs and risks associated with owning assets, particularly those critical for service delivery to your customers.

The system is structured and efficient, enabling you to reduce costs, avoid a reduction in service levels through maintenance cycles and promote continual improvement.

Benefits to your company include:

  • Reduced risks associated with Company assets
  • Improved quality assurance for customers / legal compliance
  • Tendering and winning new business
  • Value realisation from assets, improved knowledge about assets, and improved relationships with stakeholders.
  • Creation of an Asset Life Cycle
