ISO publishes new FM standards

05 May 2017

Two FM standards have been launched by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

These are ISO 41011:2017 Facility management - Vocabulary and ISO 41012:2017 Facility management - Guidance on strategic sourcing and the development of agreements.

They were developed by ISO Technical Committee 267, which is chaired by former BIFM chairman Stan Mitchell, and were formed using industry input from around the world.

The committee is now working on the development of ISO 41001 Facility management - Management systems and is seeking further contributions from industry for its development.

It is designed to further support the development, implementation and maintenance of effective FM regimes in all sectors of industry and commerce around the world.

A third technical report is also being worked on by the ISO, namely 41013, Facility management - Scope, key concepts and benefits and aims to publish this later this year.

The latest developments follow the launch of collaborative standard 44001 earlier this year, which also has considerable implications for the FM sector.
