The AMCouncil Liaison Commissioner, Peter Kohler, is the AM Council’s representative on the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM) project that is reviewing the GFMAM Maintenance Framework using a strict ISO/Standards type process.


Three weeks ago, we called for expressions of interest from our AMCouncil membership as to who would be interested in taking on this project and were overwhelmed by the number of responses.

As a result, a dedicated team from the AMCouncil membership pool collaborated virtually in numerous Zoom meetings, to undertake the requested review with comments ready to be submitted back to GFMAM.

With such a lot of content to get through in a short timeframe, the group’s dedication, efforts and time generously spent (often well into the evenings!) doing this is very much appreciated.

We wish to acknowledge and thank the following people for their contribution to this GFMAM project on behalf of the AMCouncil:
