Asset management according to ISO 55001

Effectively manage cost, risk and performance evaluation for each asset throughout its lifecycle

The international ISO 55001 "Asset management - Management systems - Requirements" has created a uniform framework for coordinating and structuring financial, operational, maintenance, risk and other asset-related activities. The holistic approach enables efficiency increases and helps in the economic use of fixed and current assets.

The standard originated from the British standard PAS 55 and follows the approach of defining all tangible assets (machinery, plant, buildings, infrastructure) or intangible assets (human capital, reputation) as individual assets and valuing them according to their costs, performance and risks. Various approaches can be used as instruments, such as life cycle or risk potential analyses.

Essentially, the international standard should be used primarily for the following purposes

  • establish, introduce, maintain and continuously improve a uniform asset management (AM) system
  • offer asset management activities and services
  • Demonstrate compliance with legal, contractual and other binding requirements to internal and external stakeholders

Your advantages with the GUTcert

Like all current ISO management standards, ISO 55001 is based on the High Level Structure and is therefore similar in structure to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. In addition, there are parallels to the ISO 31000 risk management standard. The subject of asset management can therefore be easily integrated into an integrated management system in order to achieve considerable increases in efficiency and secure the trust of stakeholders. Together with the dynamic development on the national and international markets, this leads to a significant increase in demand.

GUTcert will therefore be one of the first certification bodies to undergo the accreditation procedure of the DAkkS. Of course, we also offer combined certification procedures individually tailored to your company. As a member of the AFNOR Group, we can provide our services worldwide.
