The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) produced ISO 41001:2018, which lays forth principles for facility management. It has the same core language, definitions, and vocabulary as other ISO standards including ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) and ISO 50001 (Energy Management). Supporting materials, such as standards detailing FM vocabulary, important ideas, benefits, and agreement development, were also published before ISO 41001 was launched in April 2018.
The goal of the standard is to assist businesses in demonstrating efficient and effective FM, achieving uniformity in establishing FM criteria, and achieving sustainability. It standardizes FM principles and standards in such a way that it can assist companies of various sizes.
