Certification to ISO 55001 Asset Management
Implementing an asset management system requires investment of time, energy and in some cases, substantial cost – justified only by your organizations ability to realize the benefits of implementation. Independent certification or verification provides your business, customer and other stakeholders with a clear indicator of your performance against your asset management and wider business objectives.
Additionally, if you are looking to grow your business and demonstrate to customers and prospective customers that your system meets the requirements of a globally recognised asset management system, certification could be right for your business.
How to get certified to ISO 55001
We make the certification process straightforward. After we have received your application we appoint a Client Manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps.
- Gap analysis
This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing asset management system and compare it with ISO 55001 requirements. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.
- Formal assessment
This happens in two stages. First we review your organization’s preparedness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO 55001 procedures and controls have been developed. We will share the details of our findings with you so that if we find gaps, you can close them. If all the requirements are in place, we will then assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification.
- Certification and beyond
When you have passed the formal assessment you will receive an ISO 55001 certificate, which is valid for three years. Your client manager will stay in touch during this time, paying you regular visits to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves.
