Standards Forum

Free event

Date: Friday 9 May 2014 (10:00-15:00)

Location: Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow, G1 3SF

Join us in Glasgow at our first regional Standards Forum of the year. This event is only open to Committee Members so will give you an opportunity to meet with like-minded colleagues and network, and to find out about our latest standardization work.

We’ll be running workshops to go through the results of the recent Committee Members’ survey which will give you the chance to input into how we tackle some of the issues raised in the survey, including recruitment and recognition.

We’ll also be taking a look at the recently published standard, ISO 55001, on asset management which cuts across all sectors, and finding out why the standard is important and what it is hoped it will achieve.
