Five ways to make PAS 55 work for your organisation
In this exclusive interview, Oil & Gas IQ’s Tim Haïdar asks Mel Karam, Director of Asset Management at Southern Water, for the five main ways to make PAS 55 work in any asset-heavy organisation.
PAS 55 is the British Standards Institution's (BSI) Publicly Available Specification for the optimised management of physical assets - it provides clear definitions and a 28-point requirements specification for establishing and verifying a joined-up, whole-life management system for all types of physical assets.
Mel was previously Director of Asset Management at Thames Water, and prior to that, Network Director at Scotia Gas Networks responsible for managing a third of England and Scotland gas distribution network Assets. He brings more than 15 years professional asset management experience to Southern Water. Prior to working for Scotia Gas Networks, Mel performed in a number of senior management roles in National Grid, Transco and British Gas. As well as his experience as an Asset Management practitioner, Mel has contributed to the development of asset management as a discipline in the UK through his professional involvement in the Institute of Asset Management.
