A unique service is now available in Russia. Maintex announces asset management audit for compliance with PAS 55 standard (ISO 55000 since 2014). Maintex will provide this service in cooperation with their American strategic partner, Meridium, a PAS 55 (ISO 55000) Endorsed Assessor and one of the only 31 companies in the world to achieve this designation by the Institute of Asset Management (IAM).
As a Meridium certified services provider in Russia and CIS states, Maintex is planning to promote in the Russian Federation this standard consolidating world best practices in asset management.
"Maintex already provides a wide range of services to support clients in improving their asset management efforts, and this accreditation of our main foreign partner is yet another chance to deliver value for our Russian customers" Roman Romakhin, Maintex CEO, comments.
As the world leader in APM work processes and technologies since 1993, Meridium has worked with hundreds of companies. Thanks to Meridium experience, a clear vision of what is needed to help customers use the PAS 55 (ISO 55000) requirements has been created and this enables to realize gaps and improvement opportunities in their asset management systems.
It is important to note that audit in accordance with the standard is provided to any company wishing to be certified as compliant with PAS 55 (ISO 55000). Existing Meridium customers are proposed to use PAS 55 (ISO 55000) compliance audit service either before project launch, or upon project completion to ensure that the company implemented required improvements. Thus, Russian industrial enterprises are given the opportunity to go through the whole cycle, from preliminary diagnostics and functional deficits detection to improvement implementation and post-auditing to be certified as compliant with PAS 55 (ISO 55000).
In order to become an IAM Endorsed Assessor, Meridium completed a rigorous, detailed certification process. "We are very pleased to welcome Meridium to the group of IAM Endorsed Assessors," says David McKeown, CEO of IAM. "As companies today struggle to manage, optimize and improve their physical asset initiatives, it is important to have knowledgeable, expert help in figuring out where to direct efforts."
Now domestic companies will get this help too, if they want to improve their asset management systems and be honored as a company certified in compliance with an international standard.
