Hamad International Airport has acquired British Standards Institution’s (BSI) Asset Management System (AMS) ISO 55001:2014 certification once more.
The three-year re-certification has been maintained by the airport since 2018 and emphasises its commitment to delivering efficient and effective asset management across the airport’s infrastructure.
The BSI ISO 55001:2014 framework helps businesses to strategically manage the lifecycle of their assets with the help of industry best practices by providing assessment of risk, cost and performance associated with assets operation. The framework also supports continual improvement and value optimisation of the airport’s Asset Management System.
The audit assessed HIA’s efficiency, effectiveness and competence in the management of its organisational and physical assets across the airport infrastructure that support passenger and aircraft transport.
Senior vice president of facilities management, HIA, Michael McMillan commented: “Our aim has always been to contribute to HIA’s business objectives by mitigating the risks and costs of asset management, and maintaining optimal asset performance and services for the benefit of our customers. The assessment not only reaffirms our continual commitment to implementing best practices, but also our dedication to ensuring a safe and comfortable passenger experience across the airport at all times. We would like to thank our staff, stakeholders, and partners who have embraced their responsibilities and helped maintain the airport’s infrastructure to strengthen our asset management system over the years.”
Meanwhile, managing director, BSI, IMETA Assurance, Theuns Kotze said: “On behalf of BSI, I offer my congratulations to Hamad International Airport (HIA) on demonstrating that it continues working according to recognized best practices. ISO 55001 provides a robust asset management framework that helps make the most of assets while balancing risk, financial, environmental and social costs. Moreover, this successful recertification gives travellers confidence that HIA strives to manage its assets effectively thus ensure high quality of service and seamless performance, raising their experience.”
