Thanks for attending, Melbourne

ISOTC251The Melbourne chapter hosted an information session on the recent work of the TC251 standards committee last Thursday. Tom Carpenter, an AMC Board member and the Professionals Australia representative on TC251, explained the challenges the committee has been embracing to provide asset managers with additional material on value. Probably one of the more perplexing concepts for asset managers is making choices about value measurement. The TC251 committee has explored several options for measuring value in the next draft of the ISO 5500 Standards, including financial, safety, social and environmental parameters. AMC and EA members in Melbourne were enthusiastic with questions and feedback about the work of the TC251 committee and the more general work on asset management standards.
