The standard aims to help facility owners and operators, or those acting on their behalf, to align maintenance strategies and policies to an organisation’s core objectives in the most efficient and effective way.

Outlining the key changes, Brian Atkin, lead technical author and FM Consultant on the Standard spoke about why the Standard was revised; while Nick Blake, Principal FM Consultant at BSRIA explained why it mattered to professionals.

Pulling the focus back, Peter Brogan, IWFM’s Head of Research and Insight contextualised the standard by discussing the changing world of workplace and facilities management and how IWFM is supporting this.
