Anglian gets asset management accreditation
Anglian Water has announced it has become one of the first companies to achieve ISO55001 accreditation, the new international standard in asset management. This standard is awarded to businesses that effectively and efficiently manage their approach to asset management, whether it is physical infrastructure, management processes, maintenance or planning.
The previously recognised standard (PAS55) has been widely adopted by utility, manufacturing, mining and transport companies worldwide. This new standard builds on this and has been developed with organisations from more than 30 countries worldwide.
John Green, business improvement manager for Anglian Water, said: “As a company we’re dependent on our assets in the delivery of water and water recycling services to over six million customers.
“This accreditation gives extra confidence to everyone who relies on our business that we’re managing our assets in the most efficient way possible, as well as providing opportunities to continually improve what we do.”
The ISO55001 standard was assessed over two weeks in January by Lloyds Register. The assessors praised Anglian Water’s engagement with customers and stakeholders when developing its strategies and recognised how the management system had matured over the certification period.
