Stan Mitchell, Chairman of ISO TC 267 Facilities Management Committee, explains how Global FM can play a role in bringing together the wider community of facilities management associations and their FM communities to support the creation of a new international management systems standard for facilities management.
In his address he highlights that the development of the standard is very much in line with the theme for World FM Day 2015 – Building Resilience for the Future.
Stan Mitchell urges FM’s: “This World FM Day I would urge you to celebrate, communicate and share the message of what our discipline does, along with the value it can bring with the widest community you possibly can.”

ISO TC 267 Facilities Management Committee
A new international standard for facilities management has been formally approved to proceed into development by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). ISO 41000 will be a ‘Management System Standard’ for Facilities Management.
As a strategic tool and set of guidelines, the standard will set out an accredited structure and framework as well as formal organisational processes along with the need for key skills and competencies. The standard will provide appropriate guidance in a similar manner as the Quality, Occupational Safety and Health and Environmental Management System Standards that already exist.
Stan Mitchell, chair of the British Standards Institute (BSI) FMW/1 facilities management committee, chairs the ISO TC 267 FM Committee which will oversee the development of the standard
