Facilities Management Middle East - - CONTENTS -

Farnek has suc­cess­fully com­pleted the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion as­sess­ment for its FM process sys­tem and now com­plies with the world’s first stan­dard ded­i­cated to FM sys­tems ISO 41001:2018, ac­cord­ing to Farnek’s au­di­tor - in­ter­na­tional cer­ti­fi­ca­tion body, SGS Gulf.

Com­ment­ing on the de­vel­op­ment, Markus Ober­lin, CEO, Farnek said: “When it comes to qual­ity, we never com­pro­mise ir­re­spec­tive of how high the bar is set, and we have been work­ing metic­u­lously over the past four months to em­ploy the ex­act­ing stan­dards re­quired to com­ply with ISO 41001.

The aim of ISO 41001:2018 is to em­brace an or­gan­i­sa­tional func­tion which in­te­grates peo­ple, places and process within the built en­vi­ron­ment, with the pur­pose of im­prov­ing the qual­ity of life of peo­ple and their com­mer­cial pro­duc­tiv­ity.

The ob­jec­tive of the stan­dard is to es­tab­lish the ba­sic re­quire­ments an FM sys­tem must meet, to demon­strate the ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness of FM and its con­tri­bu­tion to­wards the ob­jec­tives of a busi­ness, en­com­pass­ing four key el­e­ments – health & safety, en­vi­ron­ment and sus­tain­abil­ity, com­pli­ance and con­sis­tency as well as ef­fec­tive­ness and cost­ef­fi­ciency.

By im­ple­ment­ing such a recog­nised global struc­ture and stan­dard­ised ap­proach to FM, whereby it can be as­sessed, mea­sured and man­aged, the stan­dard should de­liver nu­mer­ous ben­e­fits to both FM ser­vice providers and those they serve such as prop­erty and fa­cil­ity man­agers and build­ing own­ers.
