Implementing an asset management system (AMS) and gaining ISO 55001 certification with LRQA allows your organisation to manage risks which helps to support business growth and improvement.
Benefits of ISO 55001
ISO 55001 certification continually reviews processes, procedures and asset performance to enable informed management decisions that balance cost, risk, opportunity and business performance. It improves your organisational efficiency and effectiveness by managing and reducing risks associated with your ownership of assets.
Supports business growth and improvement
A robust AMS certified to ISO 55001 aids improvement with formalised, prioritised and coordinated implementation plans to which your entire organisation can understand and commit.
As good practice in asset management is mostly independent of asset type, ISO 55001 enables objective comparison of your business performance across industrial sectors, between regulated/non-regulated and public/private environments.
Improved financial performance
A good AMS can facilitate improved return on investment and cost reduction without sacrificing your short or long-term organisational performance, which in turn can lead to preservation of asset value so aiding the bottom line/profit.
Improved services and organisational sustainability
Through ISO 55001 certification your organisation will effectively manage short and long-term expenditures and performance, improving sustainability. This allows your organisation to consistently meet or exceed performance and social responsibility expectations to satisfy customer and stakeholder needs.
Enhanced reputation through compliance
By ensuring transparent conformity with legal, statutory and regulatory requirements, ISO 55001 certification ensures your organisation is adhering to asset management standards, policies and processes. This leads to improved customer satisfaction, stakeholder awareness and confidence.
