All large organisations can find it a struggle to ensure that essential information is disseminated in a timely and efficient way to stakeholders. The ISO and its some 45,000 experts brought together with the collective goal of publishing international standards is no exception to that challenge.  

With this is mind, ISO/ TC 267 Advisory Group 2 was formed and tasked with developing ISO/TC 267 messaging. Its remit is to create awareness of the Facility Management group activities and promote adoption of ISO/ TC 267 outputs.

Communication is Key  

We are pleased to announce that our own Gordon Mitchell has recently joined AG2 and is in a unique position to help drive communications forward. Many of our readers will recognise Gordon’s passion for innovation in the FM sector and this, coupled with his position as Chair of ISO/ TC 267 AG1 FMTTG and his membership of the IWFM Artificial Intelligence Technology Working Group, underpin his dedication to ensuring news on the important work being carried out by the 45 members of ISO/ TC 267 reaches as many ears as possible.

Gordon comments: “There is no evolution if innovation and awareness are not connected.”

What is next for AG2? 

Following the release of ISO 41001 (Facility management – Management systems – Requirements) in 2018, burning questions are being asked amongst the international FM community, such as:  

  • What is the value of ISO 41001 to the industry? 
  • How does an organisation get accredited to ISO 41001? 
  • What next for technology in FM?
  • What is the roadmap ahead for FM standards? 

These questions and others are being addressed by TC members at FM events worldwide and ISO/TC 267 AG2 is primed to ensure that access to the answers to these and other questions, as well as regular updates on developments, are readily accessible.
