A survey of industry use of the IS)55000 suite of standards was undertaken by AMCouncil in conjunction with IPWEA throughout October 2015. The results were used to gain in insight into the use of the standards and inform the technical standards meeting held on 11 November in Japan. A total of 98 responses were received from a cross sector of industries including government, utilities, transport, oil and gas, mining, defence and manufacturing. Responses were received from all states of Australia as well as from overseas.

60% of respondents say their organisations are using the suite of ISO55000 standards and 50% say they intend to use them in the future

Assistance in using the standards was principally sought from training providers and certification bodies offering certification to ISO55001. To a lesser extent assistance was sought from academia and other sources.
Comments about things that are liked in using the standards are centred around:-
– Clear & concise
– Standard terminology
– Alignment with business objectives
Whilst comments on improvements to the standards centred around
– Too early to say
– More Guidance
