Dubai, UAE, 11 October 2018: United Arab Emirates-based facilities management (FM) company Farnek, has successfully completed the certification assessment for its FM process system and now complies with the world’s first standard dedicated to FM systems, ISO 41001:2018, according to Farnek’s auditor – international certification body, SGS Gulf, the company announced in a Press communiqué.

Commenting on the award, Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek said: “We have been working meticulously over the past four months to employ the exacting standards required to comply with ISO 41001. It is very gratifying to know that we are the first company in the Middle East to be operating to the highest possible international FM standards.”

The objective of the standard is to establish the basic requirements an FM system must meet, to demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of FM and its contribution towards the objectives of a business, encompassing four key elements – health and safety, environment and sustainability, compliance and consistency, as well as effectiveness and cost-efficiency, the communiqué said.

Commenting on the possible benefits of achieving this benchmark, Oberlin said:  “If ISO 41001 is specified or adopted by building owners, as a minimum requirement to tender for certain FM contracts, a quality benchmark will have been set. Only FM service providers that can demonstrate compliance will be allowed to bid, paving the way for a more mature, quality and value-based tender, benefiting all stakeholders including the end-user.”
