Publicly Available Specification (PAS 55)
Asset management is a key aspect of good business management; the planning, implementation and performance management of assets over their lifecycle to ensure the business achieves its corporate objectives. It was recognised that a common approach to, and understanding of, Asset Management was required. Lloyd's Register made a joint proposal with the Institute of Asset Management to the British Standards Institution for a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) addressing Asset Management.

PAS 55 Requirements (Part 1) and Guidance (Part 2) were initially published by BSI in May 2004, and subsequently revised in 2008 with the assistance of 49 organisations from 15 industries in 10 countries. Structure of PAS 55 PAS 55 was developed based upon the ISO management systems Plan Do Check Act approach. It built on the structure of existing standards to ease understanding and adoption. The structure and content allows existing management processes to be adopted in the PAS 55 system where appropriate, without necessarily requiring a clean sheet. Aims of PAS 55 The challenge of Asset Management (AM) is to align the performance of the assets with the organisation's strategic plan reflecting stakeholder requirements. PAS 55 provides a framework in the form of an AM System within which the OSP, AM Policy, AM Strategy and Objectives are translated into practical objectives for the assets. These objectives are subsequently achieved through the implementation of compliant AM Plans.

Key Enablers Successful implementation of a PAS 55 compliant AM system is dependent upon a number of key enablers including: • senior management buy-in and support • understanding of strategic aims and how the asset base contributes to their achievement • understanding and management of all asset related risks • ability to define, collect and use the correct information to inform AM decisions • regular review and challenging of AM related activities.
