With the advent of ISO 55000, 55001 and 55002 there will naturally be a desire for some companies to get certified. In fact in the UK, the first certification by the British Standards Institute has already taken place and less than a month after the standards were officially released! If your organization was already PAS 55 certified, it should be a small leap to ISO certification – after all, it was based on PAS 55 and if anything, it appears to be a bit less onerous as well as better suited to broader application.
Certification against ISO 55001 applies only to the management system for a facility, installation, company or other portfolio of assets. It DOES NOT apply to people, but people can be certified as Asset Managers.
