About ISO 55001
ISO 55001 is an international standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in January 2014. It specifies requirements for the development, implementation, maintenance, and improvement of an organization’s asset management system with regard to social infrastructure such as water and wastewater systems, roads, bridges, railroads and port facilities.
The METAWATER Group will continuously improve its certified asset management system and contribute to the sustainable development of water and environmental infrastructure in cooperation with water supply and sewage operators such as local governments and partner companies.
