Implications of ISO 55000 standards on infrastructure asset management in Australia

The pending introduction of the ISO 55000 series of standards on asset management, will potentially impact all who have asset management responsibilities. These standards, whilst framed on physical assets management, can be utilised for any asset type. The Standards are intended for use by any sized organisation and have a range of objectives including the promotion of good practice through to full third-party certification of conformance to the standards. This paper comments on the possible implications for organisations, particularly those currently managing infrastructure assets, who may choose to apply the standards or who may be required to do so by way of regulation. These views arise from the Author’s involvement as the IPWEA representative on the Standards Australia Mirror Committee for the development of the ISO 55000 standards.
