BS ISO 55001:2014

Asset management. Management systems. Requirements

Status : Current, Under review   Published : January 2014



Since its publication in 2004, PAS 55 has been an international success story. It is increasingly recognized as a generically applicable definition of good practice in the optimized management of physical assets.  

That’s why we’ve transformed it to become an international standard, which is available in three parts:

  • BS ISO 55000 provides critical overview, concepts and terminology
  • BS ISO 55001 specifies the requirements for an effective Asset Management System
  • BS ISO 55002 offers interpretation and guidance for such a system to be implemented.

BS ISO 55001 specifies the requirements for the establishment, implementation, maintenance and improvement of an asset management system. It can be used by any organization to determine which of its assets this International Standard applies.

Be a step ahead of everyone else

The standard seeks to:

  • Facilitate the establishment, implementation, maintenance of an asset management system;
  • Address related risks and opportunities;
  • Direct those involved in delivering asset management activities;
  • Set asset management objectives and plans to achieve them;
  • Assess an organization’s ability to meet legal, regulatory and contractual requirements.

The requirements within the document are designed to enable your organization to align and integrate its asset management system with related management system requirements.

A compilation of all three standards is also available.
