It provides guidance on how to manage facilities maintenance.

Who is this standard for?

Those with responsibility for facilities maintenance in most types of building-related facilities including for health care, education, housing, manufacturing and distribution, commerce, retailing, utilities, communication and transportation.

Why should you use this standard?

It gives guidance on the maintenance management of facilities by:

  • Outlining a process approach to maintenance management at the strategic and tactical levels, with links to operational activities
  • Helping organizations and individuals formulate strategy and policies for maintenance management
  • Assisting those responsible for ensuring that facility assets continue to perform as intended, retaining their asset value at minimum cost
  • Highlighting the importance of regular and planned maintenance as a value adding activity
  • Highlighting relevant areas of importance with regard to occupational health and safety and information management

What’s changed since the last update?

This is a full revision of the 1986 edition, and introduces the following principal changes:

  • The scope has shifted from largely operational matters to those of a more strategic and tactical nature, while retaining a focus on matters of practical importance
  • A broader range of facility assets has been taken into account
  • Developments in technology affecting the nature of facility assets and the maintenance management process, in particular the use of information and communications technology (ICT), have been taken into account
