In the era of growing complexity in decision making processes, associations between entities involved in value chains, have become stronger and more diverse. Simultaneously, a need for a quick and objective evaluation to what extend an organization meets the requirements of standards, particularly the requirements of the ISO family, has increased significantly. A solution to this problem is a certificate issued by recognized organization, that attests required qualifications and confirms compliance conformity with established norms.
The need for certification applies not only to the companies, which compete with each other and struggle for their position in products and services market, as well as for recognition among their clients. Also public institutions strive for acceptance from public opinion, media and their funding bodies. It could be explained by the fact that the certification of compliance with the requirements of international standards is pointed out as one of the most important strategic goals by members of various management boards. It determines the improvement of processes, ensures high quality, and as a result, facilitates obtaining the desired position in the industry and prestige.
Among international norms regulating Asset Management processes, one can find many types of norms, yet the most significant are the following:
- ISO 9001:2015 Quality management systems – Requirements
- ISO 55000:2014 Asset Management
- ISO 19650:2018 Information Management
Connections between these three crucial types of norms are illustrated below:
Implementation of Asset Management system accordingly to ISO 55001 standard, provides measurable benefits for the whole organization, to begin with economical and qualitative, ending with general improvements in work culture. Implementation is the culmination of a whole process, that enables a critical overview of existing procedures, methods and techniques in order to verify, if they contribute to realization of company’s goals.
One of the most important aspects in the implementation of Asset Management system is the institution of audit. An internal audit, as well as an external, allows a thorough evaluation of company’s anticipated goals in comparison to the current state, using transparent procedures. The final step of this process is a certification audit, from which depends, whether the organization obtains the desired certificate.
