GFMAM Competency Specification for an ISO 55001 Asset Management System Auditor / Assessor

12-14 Specification Cover

From consultation with stakeholders, it has become clear that members and stakeholders of the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM) Member Societies are seeking assistance in achieving results from the ISO 5500X Standards. In particular, organisations require competent and capable people - who may be employed as staff or brought in from external organisations - to assess against, or comply with, ISO 55001.

The Competency Specification for an ISO 55001 Asset Management System Auditor / Assessor sets out the minimum knowledge and comprehension specification for personnel to audit or assess to ISO 55001.

Each GFMAM member incorporates this Specification as part of their asset management framework.

These competency requirements have been created to form the baseline to assure the competence of people who audit or assess organisations to ISO 55001. These competency requirements conform to, at least, the requirements and recommendations in ISO 17210-5 and ISO 19011:2011.

Asset Management Council Membership Renewal FAQs

It's that time of year again! Here are some recently asked questions about the new renewal system.

Why is the AM Council managing its own membership renewals?

The Asset Management Council and Engineers Australia, with reluctance, made the decision that the Asset Management Council would take on the renewal process for members in the short term. This splits membership payment into two processes for those who are members of both organisations.
The new Engineers Australia portal, excellently designed for individual members, is not yet easily functional for our corporate member representatives, who represent almost half of our membership. Additional features for the EA portal are still under development, which is why we plan that the situation will revert in the future.

Is there an AM Council membership discount if I’m also an EA member?

We are still clarifying the discount that applies to the first technical society membership of EA members under this current and hopefully temporary system. We will let you know as soon as possible if the discount still is available and can be applied.

Keep your eyes open for more FAQs, and if in doubt, please don't hesitate to call us on 03 9819 2515.
