ISO 41001

What Is ISO 41001?

ISO 41001:2018 is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization that sets forth guidelines for facility management. It follows the same structure as other ISO standards, such as ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management), with the same core text, definitions, and terms.

Before ISO 41001 was released in April 2018, supporting documents were also published, including standards outlining FM vocabulary, key concepts, benefits, and agreement development.

The standard’s purpose is to help organizations demonstrate efficient and effective FM, pursue consistency when defining FM requirements, and achieve sustainability. It standardizes FM concepts and requirements in such a way that organizations of all kinds can benefit from it.

The core objectives of ISO 41001 help organizations gain the following benefits:

Improved safety, health, and well-being for workers
Improved productivity
Increased efficiency and effectiveness
Improved communication, particularly when it comes to FM requirements and methodologies
Greater consistency of services
FM standardization across all types of organizations
Nationally / internationally recognized credibility

The end result of these benefits is to help organizations become more cost-effective and improve their reputation among consumers and business partners. By becoming 41001 certified, organizations prove that they have an effective facility management system in place.
