ISO-41001 is an international standard for a Facility Management (FM) system. It provides a framework based on the Annex SL structure to assist enterprises in developing, implementing, and maintaining a global facilities management system. It is intended to assist procurement and facilities teams by serving as a standard for evaluating the competency and efficiency of facilities management systems, as well as the consistency and capability of the services used.
Facility management is a technology that helps firms enhance efficiencies across the whole supply chain, from procurement to operations to maintenance.
Facility management is the organisational function that integrates people, place and process within the built environment, with the purpose of improving the quality of life of people and the productivity of the core business The new standard will also clarify the “what and why” of facilities management, placing it firmly at the centre of strategic operations. Managing operations and maintenance of a workplace is essential for maintaining important assets and operational efficiencies, and is a growing importance for all businesses.
