Asset Management Software

ISO 55000 Information Sheet

The International Standards Organisation (ISO) published the new ISO 55000 suite of asset management standards on 15th January 2014.

The ISO Series was developed over 3 years, with input from 26 countries, culminating in a launch event in London on 5th February, hosted by the Institute of Asset Management and British Standards Institution (BSI).

The Series consists of three standards documents:

  • ISO 55000 - This provides an overview of asset management and the standard terms and definitions to be used.
  • ISO 55001 - This specifies the requirements for an integrated, effective management system for assets. (Note – this is not a software specification, but an organisation’s asset management plans and implementation)
  • IS0 55002 - This offers more detailed guidance on implementing an asset management system.
