Hamad’s Asset Management System renews BSI excellence certification
Qatar’s Hamad International Airport continues to be recognised for its sustainability efforts, this week having its Asset Management System (AMS) ISO 55001:2014 certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI) renewed for another three years.
The Doha gateway believes that the recertification endorses its approach to delivering efficient and effective asset management across the airport’s infrastructure.
The BSI ISO 55001:2014 framework helps businesses 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.
According to the Qatar Company for Airports Operations and Management, MATAR, the framework also supports continual improvement and value optimisation of the airport’s Asset Management System.
The audit assessed DOH’s efficiency, effectiveness, and competence in the management of its organisational and physical assets across the airport infrastructure that support passenger and aircraft transport.
DOH’s senior vice president of facilities management, Michael McMillan, said: “Our aim has always been to contribute to Hamad’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.”
