Certification to this standard covers those companies that offer general, or indeed, specific specialised facility management services to their customers.
The facility management (FM) standard incorporates multiple disciplines in order to have an influence on the performance and productivity of economies of societies, communities and industries, as well as the way in which individuals interact with the environment. FM affects the health, happiness and quality of life of much of the world’s societies and populations through the services it manages and delivers.
The benefits of the facility management integrated system standard are improved personnel productivity, safety, health and wellbeing. It enables enhanced communication of requirements and methodologies between public and private sector companies, as well improved efficiency which in turn provides cost benefits to organizations.
Certified organisations can promote themselves as certificate holders in their promotional materials and can include the URS certification logo free of charge.
