Farnek first Middle East firm to achieve FM ISO
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.
