Easy 3-step ISO 41001 certification
ISO develops standards; however, it does not perform certification or issue certificates. In fact, certification is not the only way to demonstrate conformity with standards. Read on.
Organizations can claim conformity with management system standards such as ISO 41001 without the immediacy of third-party audits, although these are recommended by us once your management system has become established.
FMS Audit assists you in demonstrating conformity through a process of self-determination and self-declaration. This first-party audit is based on your organization’s Internal Audits and Management Reviews guided by FMS Audit.
Benefits of a Facility Management System
A Facility Management System integrates quality, environmental, health and safety, security and business continuity requirements with those relating specifically to facility management. In effect, SIX management systems in ONE.
MORE BUSINESS, BETTER PROFITS
Conformity with ISO 41001 means working on a common platform for facility management that is increasingly recognized by clients (i.e. facility owners, operators and tenants) and service providers.
FEWER ERRORS, GREATER EFFICIENCY
More consistent management practices and procedures lead to improved efficiency and effectiveness, generating cost benefits for the facility management organization.
SATISFIED CLIENTS & FACILITY USERS
Ensuring that your organization understands the client’s needs, requirements and preferred ways of working means a higher probability of satisfied facility users.
RETAINED STAFF & OPERATIVES
Facility Management Systems in conformity with ISO 41001 can improve workforce productivity, safety, health and well-being, leading to greater retention of staff and operatives.
Why is ISO 41001 important for all Facility Management organizations?
Facility owners, operators and tenants in the public and private sectors are increasingly requiring their facility management organizations and external service providers to maintain a Facility Management System because it enables more efficient and cost effective service delivery. ISO 41001 is the global standard for establishing, implementing, maintaining, updating and improving an integrated Facility Management System.
Comparing ISO 41001 with ISO 9001
ISO 41001 is a sector-specific standard so it can be expected to be broader than a generic standard focused on one element of an organization’s business. You can see the differences below.
- Applies to the FM organization
- FM recognized as a separate entity
- FM vision, strategy, policy and plans covered
- Focused on success of the client (i.e. demand organization)
- Supports the objectives of the client (i.e. demand organization)
- Applies to the whole organization
- FM not recognized as a separate entity
- FM operations might be covered
- Focused on quality of processes
- Aims to provide consistent products and services
