Launch of ISO 44001 announced for collaborative working

09 December 2016

Ratification of the new ISO 44001 standard for collaborative working was announced at last night's Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW) annual awards event.

Held at the House of Lords and hosted by Lord David Evans of Watford, the event was attended by representatives of some of the UK's largest operators within FM, infrastructure and construction.

Announcing the standard, the ICW described the long and complex journey required before this could be formalised.

Its basis is within the CRAFT methodology, established to provide a systematic approach to collaboration, from strategic concept to exiting from business relationships.

This led to discussion with the British Standards Institute (BSI) and publication of PAS 11000 in 2006 and followed by the world's first national standard BS 11000 in 2010.

Over the last 10 years, ICW has continued to work with its members to achieve independent validation.

Since 2013, the organisation has led discussions with the International Standards Organisation (ISO) and has achieved agreement between 12 countries within America, Europe and Asia.

With the final draft now accepted, ISO 44001 will be officially published in early 2017.

It covers a wide range of aspects and includes a number of processes designed to improve engagement and risk management, underpin effectiveness, raise rates of efficiency, enhance skills and build sustainable relationships.
