The Facilities Management
Professional Standards

Our Professional Standards underpin the workplace and facilities management profession.

The Professional Standards, established in 2014, clearly define the competences that are necessary to be a competent facilities management practitioner at all career levels; forming a global competence model for the profession.

Created in consultation with industry stakeholders, experts and professional standards writers, the Standards can be used to benchmark skills, knowledge and competence for those working at all levels in the FM profession.

These standards form the basis of what is the world's most extensive FM Professional Development Pathway, from entry level through to senior strategic roles, which provides qualifications, training, professional membership and CPD to help all individuals and businesses excel in facilities management.
