In 2002-2004 the UK Institute of Asset Management, in conjunction with British Standards Institution, developed PAS 55, a publicly available specification for the management of physical assets. With widespread adoption in utilities, transport, mining, process and manufacturing industries worldwide it is successful and accepted standards within the asset management community. The International Standards Organization (ISO) has now accepted PAS 55 as the basis for development of the new ISO 55000 series of international standards.
The ISO 55000 series will comprise three standards:
- ISO 55000 provides an overview of asset management, its principles, terms and definitions, and the expected benefits from adopting asset management along
- ISO 55001 specifies the requirements for asset management system within an organization
- ISO 55002 provides guidance on implementing such an asset management system as specified in ISO 55001
The standards are now completed, finalized, and approved, and are available from the various national standards bodies.
