Hamad International Airport (HIA), managed by Qatar Company for Airports Operations and Management – MATAR, has obtained the ISO 55001: 2014 Asset Management System Certificate by the British Standards Institution’s (BSI), and since 2018 HIA maintained the ISO certification, which is valid for three years from the date of issuance. This reflects HIA’s continuous efforts to ensure 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. The framework also supports continual improvement and value optimization of the airport’s Asset Management System.
HIA’s Senior Vice President (Facilities Management) Michael McMillan said: "Our aim has always been to contribute to HIA’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".
