ISO 55001 and PAS 55

Lloyds Register

In 2004 the Institute of Asset Management, in conjunction with British Standards


Institution, developed PAS 55, the first publicly available specification for the
management of physical assets. Recognising the key need for a sustainable, riskbased, asset management approach, Lloyds Register took a leading role in the
development of PAS 55, its revision in 2008 and its evolution into the ISO 5500x
suite of standards.

The International Standards Organisation


(ISO) has now accepted PAS 55 as the
basis for development of the new
ISO 55000 series of international
standards and these standards are
due for publication in early 2014. This
factsheet has been developed to inform
our existing PAS 55 clients what the
introduction of ISO 55001 will mean to
them and how Lloyds Register intends
to manage the transition to the new
Standards.
The ISO 55000 series will comprise three
standards:
ISO 55000 provides an overview of the
subject of asset management and the
standard terms and definitions to be
used
ISO 55001 is the requirements
specification for an effective
management system for assets
IS0 55002 provides guidance for the
implementation of such a system

The Changes
ISO 55001 is one of the new breed of
management system standards based
on Annex SL, the common high level
structure and text for management
system standards, this allows
organisations to work easily with other
standards already produced in this area
and is designed to be compatible with
common management system standards
such as ISO 9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS
18001. It continues to be based on the
Plan, Do, Check, Act principles.
PAS 55 was specifically developed to
manage physical assets, and whilst ISO
55001 is still aimed at these assets, it
is also applicable to all types of assets.
This means that some clauses of PAS 55
that were specific to physical assets are
no longer included in ISO 55001. These
clauses include:

Monitoring the condition of assets


Tools and Equipment
The requirements of these clauses in
PAS 55 are now generally contained
in the guidance standard ISO 55002 as
recommendations rather than mandatory
requirements.
ISO 55001 has introduced additional
requirements that will need to be
assessed to ensure compliance to ISO
55001. The additional requirements are
detailed in Appendix A.
The Transition
It is anticipated that ISO 55001 will be
published in early 2014 and Lloyds
Register intends to deliver certification
services against this new standard should
clients request it. At this time it is not
clear what the future holds for PAS 55
but it is likely to be withdrawn by British

of the publication of ISO 55001. Our
clients tell us they have gained significant
business benefit from the robust
methodology used by Lloyds Register in
delivering PAS 55 certification services.
Therefore we will continue to use this
same methodology in delivering ISO
55001 services.
For those companies who are already
certified to PAS 55 through Lloyds
Register we can offer the following
options:
1. Continue with your existing
certification until the end of the
current certification period and then
transition to ISO 55001.
2. Request a special transition visit so
that the additional requirements of
ISO 55001 can be assessed and an ISO
55001 certificate can then be issued. If
you require you can also maintain your
PAS 55 certification.

demonstrates the management of these


assets. We recognize that, for some
organisations (specifically physical asset
intensive organisations), there is merit
in continuing to be assessed against
specific clauses and requirements of PAS
55. Where requested we will offer our
clients this additional service as part of
our ISO 55001 assessment, but it is not
a requirement for achieving ISO 55001
certification.
The robust approach to asset
management system assessment
we developed for delivering PAS 55
assessment will continue for ISO 55001.
The benefits obtained through our
detailed assessments carried out by sector
experts will again provide the challenge
welcomed by our clients. Our objective
remains the same, to help you identify
and deliver improvements to your asset
management system in line with the
new international standard.
