ISO 41001 Facilities Management System

“The World’s First International Facilities Management System (FMS) Standard”

ISO 41001 is the international standard for a Facility Management (FM) system. It provides a framework to develop, implement and maintain effective facilities management across different sectors worldwide and specifies the requirements for a facility management (FM) system when an organization:

  • Needs to demonstrate effective and efficient delivery of FM that supports the objectives of the demand organization;
  • Aims to consistently meet the needs of interested parties and applicable requirements;
  • Aims to be sustainable in a globally-competitive environment.

The requirements specified in ISO 41001:2018 are non-sector specific and intended to be applicable to all organizations, or parts thereof, whether public or private sector, and regardless of the type, size and nature of the organization or geographical location.

Having a standardized approach to facilities management is envision to deliver the following benefits:

  • Improved safety, health, well-being and productivity of workforce
  • Better efficiency and effectiveness, hence improving organizational cost benefits
  • Enhanced communication of FM methodologies and requirements among and between public and private sector organizations
  • Improved consistency of service levels delivered
  • Providing a common platform for all types of organizations
  • More efficient use of resources and improved financial performance
  • Improved risk management and protection of people and the environment
  • Increased capability to deliver consistent and improved services and products, thereby increasing value to customers and all other stakeholders
  • Covid-19/and other viruses emergency preparedness & business continuity
  • Encourage innovation and continuous improvement
  • Manage your supply chain with confidence
  • Optimizes your FM resources and suppliers

Although FM provides so much value to the core business in what it does and achieves, it continues to be considered by many as a silent partner at best, at worst, a cost cutting commodity that is always a cost saving or cost reduction target. Regardless of how it’s perceived, the benefits of ISO 41001:2018 Facility Management System are unquestionable. The advantages by far outweigh any perceived disadvantages.
