The professional body for whole life management of physical assets

What is ISO 55000?

After the launch of BSI PAS 55:2008, the IAM worked hard with the British Standards Institution (BSI) to explore the best way to produce a formal International Standard, through the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). 

Our aim was to increase the degree of international and cross-sector participation in the development of asset management good practice and application in many more parts of the world.  In late July 2009, BSI submitted a proposal to form a "Project Committee" to develop an International Standard, seeking input from experts, industries and other learned societies from around the world.  We are now delighted to be promoting the suite of three new Standards. 

ISO Project Committee 251 (ISO/PC251) was established by the ISO Technical Management Board in August 2010 and held its first plenary meeting in Melbourne, Australia from 28th February to 4th March 2011.  The last meeting took place in Calgary from 29th April to 3rd May 2013.

The IAM and BSI are very proud that, over the last 10 years, PAS 55 has become the default global standard for asset management. Having initiated the project to produce an ISO, we were delighted by the enthusiastic and wide participation in this work.

These three international standards (55000/1/2) are important not only for their content but because they represent a global consensus on what asset management is and what it can do to increase value generated by all organisations – at a time when everyone needs to make the most of any resources they have… 

We believe that asset management will increasingly become the best means of harnessing and integrating all the activities within an organisation to achieve its purpose most effectively and economically.
