ISO 41001, the organisation places its focus on building management, more commonly known as facility management.
ISO 41001 was implemented to establish the requirements a facility management system must meet in organisations that:
Facility management is the organisational function that integrates people, place and process within the built environment, with the purpose of improving the quality of life of people and the productivity of the core business
The new standard will also clarify the “what and why” of facilities management, placing it firmly at the centre of strategic operations. Managing operations and maintenance of a workplace is essential for maintaining important assets and operational efficiencies, and is a growing importance for all businesses.
