Two new International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards have been prepared for the global facilities management (FM) sector. 

Defining the terms used in FM standards, ISO 41011:2017, Facility management – Vocabulary, it was reported by fm-world.co.uk last year, would "help to clarify the ‘what’ as well as the ‘why’ FM is a strategically important discipline to all organisations".  

ISO 41012:2017, Facility management – Guidance on strategic sourcing and the development of agreements is aimed at improving contract standards in the FM sector. 

The standard covers "essential elements in FM sourcing processes; FM roles and responsibilities in sourcing processes; and development processes and structures of typical agreement models".

ISO 41012:2017 is expected to support FM education and research, the development of FM strategies and information systems, and business re-engineering processes.
