New ISO standard for facility management

ISO 41001, Facility management – Management systems – Requirements with guidance for use was published on April 28, 2018.
The new management system standard constitutes a benchmark for developing and driving an effective strategic, tactical and operational facility management.
The standard will also assist organizations seeking to outsource FM, as those providers who are able to demonstrate compliance with the standard will provide them with an assurance regarding their approach and processes.

ISO 41001 is the first standard of its kind for facility management and has the potential to make a real difference to organizations by
  • improving workforce health and safety, 
  • reducing their impact on the environment and 
  • making considerable cost savings and efficiencies.

The structure of the new Facility management standard is similar to all newer versions of ISO management standards like ISO 9001:2015, ISO 45001:2018, ISO 14001:2015. This makes it easier for the organization to create and maintain Integrated Management System.
